The development of global markets means that many of our clients carry out business in different jurisdictions. To respond to the needs of our clients, we are members of an international legal group called LAWorld (www.laworld.com). LAWorld is a non-exclusive international legal network of more than 50 independent law firms covering most of the major commercial centers around the world. Its central purpose is to provide the clients of its members with rapid and efficient access to quality legal advice anywhere in the world. We were invited to become the LAWorld representative for Florida and we have been a member since 2003.
Our active membership in such an organization enables us to provide added value to our clients by referring them to a firm in a foreign jurisdiction, safe in the knowledge that our member colleagues have similar levels of service to our own. In particular, all members have broadly based commercial, corporate and business practices with litigation capabilities and can help our clients with issues such as cross border transactions, business migration or international contracts. Like us, our LAWorld colleagues have a strong commitment to the use of the latest technology and have English speaking lawyers who communicate efficiently with us. Devine Goodman has worked with numerous LAWorld members on a wide variety of legal matters.
Guy Rasco was elected to serve as two-year term Chair of LAWorld at the Annual General Meeting in Hong Kong in 2014. Mr. Rasco previously served two terms on the Executive Committee. In 2009, Devine Goodman hosted the annual LAWorld conference in Miami. The firm has also hosted several Regional Meetings, including the Joint North and South America Regional Meeting in Miami in November 2015.
