LNI, a new non exclusive network of leading law firms in over 50 countries and covering more than 60 jurisdictions, results from the merger of two long established networks, Legal Network International and OASIS (LNI for 23 years and OASIS for 37 years). LNI has been in existence for 23 years, with members in over 36 countries (most of Europe, the US, Central and South America, Russia and the Far East). OASIS (The Organisation of Advocates Specialising in International Services) was formed in 1975 and before the merger it had 23 members covering 28 jurisdictions, almost all in Europe.
The merger will make LNI one of the larger legal networks, comprising in total over 5,000 legal professionals, represented in 135 cities (most of Europe, the US, Central and Southern America, Russia and the Far East). The merger combines the global reach of LNI with the strength of OASIS in Central and Eastern Europe.
LNI member firms are full service, medium-sized and internationally focused law firms that provide services such as corporate, international business transactions, foreign investments, M&A, company and commercial, anti-trust, dispute resolution, banking and finance, real estate, tax; negotiating with government agencies; counselling on environmental issues; intellectual property, media and entertainment and many other legal services. LNI stands apart from other networks of its kind due to the personal contacts between the member firms, many of which have been members since the inception of the respective networks.
LNI’s ethos is "Quality, Priority and Personal Contacts". By working in accordance with this ethos, the network enjoys a high level of trust amongst its members which, in turn, allows clients to benefit from a one-stop international legal service, guaranteeing excellence wherever in the world the client, or their business, is based.
The members of the network meet in person twice a year and are directed by a Steering Committee of 9 members.
LNI is open to new membership in jurisdictions where it is currently not represented. For further information on the application process, please select the "contact" button.
