Global Advocacy

International Law Firm


Global law is a valuable resource for large companies that carry out international business in countries that lack firms specialising in the complex disciplines that govern international business. In countries with well-established legal systems and a solid rule of law, such as the European Union, global firms are not essential in functional terms. National firms have the necessary tools and human talent to meet all the legal needs of global companies in an efficient manner, maintaining their independence of judgement and applying high standards without entering into conflicts of interest. In addition, they tend to offer more sustainable prices in general. The costs of administrative and “kitchen” errors in a foreign country can involve significant, and possible procedural contingencies for investing companies. It is always advisable to count on local lawyers.




Global advocacy makes sense. From our experience gained over two decades as affiliates of Anglo-Saxon firms (Denton International and Eversheds), we can offer consistent and consistent ideas on global efficiency.


Global Firms are a good choice for global corporate assignments that do not require a in-depth knowledge of the local fabric. In jurisdictions where the local headquarters of a Global Firm is really a “pied à terre” without strong local human capital, it may be advisable to opt for other options. A multi-jurisdictional team coordinated under consistent Project Management criteria that includes excellent local firms can generate great global efficiency. In such cases the coordinator exercises the organisational authority that global work requires.


Cost and excellence, rather than brand and prestige, should be the primary arguments when choosing international teams. Opt for accredited “excellence” that includes Project Management criteria as the basis for success in each project. This project management structure is the basis for the coordination and management of projects that set the standards for the future of innovative advocacy.

In complex litigation, in sophisticated transactions, in industrial operations – mining, environmentally contentious industries – one should not improvise or choose simplistic criteria from the well-worn world panels.

It is better to go deeper and get it right in the decision of the coordinating and executing firm, with the coordinator being in charge of integrating the combined expertise of local specialists with proven excellence, experience and probity.


The large projects in which Lupicinio has integrated a cross-functional team composed of local firms, boutique law firms and global firms are a wealth of unquestionable experience.

Over the past 40 years, we have identified important shortcomings in some Global Firms that can open up opportunities for more flexible players, more respectful of local firms and less focused on the “City” and its financial results.

If you want to dive into the operating rooms of a Smarter Firm – what may be the law of the future – you can browse the website of Lupicinio, a classic, cross-disciplinary, innovative and ground-breaking Firm.
