The Southern Law Network is an affiliation of law firms that collectively have a major presence in each of 12 Southeastern states. Its goals are to provide quality, cost-effective legal services to clients who have multijurisdictional legal needs, thereby enhancing the client’s ability to compete in those legal marketplaces. Network firms create results for clients that are beyond their individual means. With access to more than 2,000 lawyers, clients enjoy the regionalization of their business operations, instead of bearing the burden of securing separate representation in each jurisdiction. The effect is to have a virtual firm representation with the advantages of a major physical presence in each market.Formed in 1996, the Network’s team approach combines the resources of 10 significant firms and allows for the seamless delivery of legal services across state lines. The Network has successfully joined forces on complex projects and provided detailed, cost-effective solutions and strategies for clients. Member firms have the critically competitive advantage of scale and may, therefore, compete on a larger scale by undertaking common projects in the ever-changing business and legal markets.
