Michael Roch spoke to the leadership summit of the Association of International Law Firm Networks in London on 3 October 2016.

International networks of law firms seek to help their member firms compete against more integrated international law firms. Establishing relationships between partners of member firms is one common effort that networks seek to support – because these relationships are necessary to develop clients, establish integrated ways of working and allowing key junior talent similar career opportunities as their peers in more integrated firms.

Michael’s presentation revolved around the options for establishing international practices in international networks. He focused on establishing self-selecting communities as the best approach and provided five key success factors for the establishment of global practices.
