The Atlanta office of Smith Moore LLP has earned membership in MSI Global Alliance (msiglobal.org), a prestigious global association of independent law firms and accounting firms. MSI provides a way for member attorneys to work collaboratively with other MSI lawyers from countries around the world for clients whose legal needs are international in scope.
"The alliance with MSI gives Smith Moore an opportunity to be a part of what is essentially a virtual international law practice," said Larry Myers, an MSI representative for Smith Moore's Atlanta office. "Through MSI, Smith Moore now has an association with colleagues on every continent. And at the same time, lawyers around the globe have a way to access the services we can provide when their clients need a legal presence in Atlanta and the surrounding area."
Smith Moore was invited to become an MSI member based on an MSI evaluation of the firm's reputation, experience and specific business law capabilities. "Smith Moore is an excellent match for MSI firms in terms of its size, client base and its broad spectrum of services," said MSI Chief Executive James Mendelssohn. "They are a valuable addition to MSI's well-established alliance of legal and accounting firms in the U.S."
The 20 attorneys on Smith Moore's Atlanta staff practice in a number of areas important to international business, including corporate law, litigation, insurance matters, healthcare, product liability and tax law. Mendelssohn says, "Attorneys and their clients are facing similar challenges around the world. Smith Moore's ability to offer a broad range of sophisticated, cross-border legal services provides precisely what MSI members are looking for--professional colleagues in Atlanta they can trust as confidently as they trust a member of their own firm."
