The firms have been selected based on their expertise and ability to work with clients effectively, in faster and more effective ways than traditional firms - with an emphasis on service delivery, cost control and experience.
In addition to business law, LeClairRyan has joined TALI’s global labor and employment law practice, Labor Law Plus™ (www.laborlawplus.com), a global legal resource providing integrated labor and employment law services in more than 90 countries worldwide, to the global legal and human resource communities.
