LEI is currently seeking members

Prospective members are always welcome to contact LEI’s CEO, Pablo Bonfill, for an initial discussion.

If the prospective firm wishes to proceed with their application, the first stage will be to complete a Membership Application Form. If the firm appears to meet the group’s membership criteria and business objectives, LEI will arrange a visit to the firm to conduct a quality assurance review.

A prospective member firm is required:

TO PASS A LEI QUALITY ASSURANCE REVIEW

TO MEET THE MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA

 TO APPOINT AN INTERNATIONAL CONTACT PERSON

If these conditions are met, and with the approval of existing members, the prospective firm is admitted to membership. There is no obligation for member firms to be exclusive to LEI. However, it is hoped that firms will use other LEI members for their overseas needs whenever possible.

LEI is currently seeking members. Whilst our focus is predominantly on Europe, we are always happy to discuss opportunities for membership with firms from other parts of the world.

The annual subscription for each member firm is calculated by reference to the number of lawyers in the firm. Please download the Membership Application Form for more information.
