Our international strategy is founded on our independence. When we choose an overseas law firm to work on a project, we make a wholly independent assessment of the best lawyer for that piece of work. We are able to do this because we spend a lot of time on due diligence and relationship building with law firms (and lawyers) in key jurisdictions. What is important in servicing clients across borders is the provision of expertise; clients want to work with whichever is the best law firm with the relevant expertise in a given jurisdiction and that is what our model offers - uniformly high quality worldwide.
We are at the same time frequently referred work by many leading law firms throughout the world. We notice that those who entrust us with work all have a level of prestige that speaks volume about our own evolution, achievements and success. Over the last years, we have been able to further establish this kind of informal relationships with elite City and Wall Street law firms.
The significant evolution of Lydian was confirmed by our clients in many legal directories, e.g., Lydian is referred to in Legal 500 as “(...) reliable, respects deadlines, very hands-on and a relief to work with”.
