Nexus Law Group has revealed it has partnered with US-headquartered Rimon Law and UK-headquartered Excello Law to share knowledge and boost its capability to service clients globally.
The alliance will see over 200 lawyers come together and enable Nexus to expand its offering further.
According to a statement from the NewLaw group, it is envisaged that the alliance of the three firms will be “underpinned by an extension of Nexus’ unique OpenLaw practice management system, built to connect independent lawyers by automatically capturing and paying referrals between them”.
“We intend to join like-minded firms throughout Asia to complete the picture on this Alliance,” added Nexus managing partner Marcus McCarthy.
“All member firms will have access to the next version of the OpenLaw software and will be able to publish jurisdiction-specific documents on our soon-to-be-published online smart contracts platform.
“This is a really exciting time for us and we are committed to forging a new and better path for the legal profession, just like Rimon and Excello.”
Mr McCarthy noted that all three firms share a like-minded approach to innovative legal service delivery and share a similar story in that they are each founded so that lawyers could effectively combine their capabilities, free of the restrictions of practising in traditional large firms.
“As long as there is that shared mindset of ‘connected independence’, the OpenLaw software makes it is easy to plug in all lawyers together globally, even in different firms, as if they were lawyers in the office next door,” he said.
“That is what the system was designed to do – that is a model without borders and there is no upper limit to this practice structure.
“This is a fantastic development in the NewLaw space, bringing together a solid global resource of great lawyers and, at last, positions a serious NewLaw to compete effectively with the larger global firms. Traditional firms who have been through mergers or formed international alliances wouldn’t believe how comparatively easy this was to accomplish. It’s proof of the viability of the NewLaw approach on a global scale.”
