TELFA – Trans-European Law Firms Alliance- was founded in 1989 and born out of the need to serve clients doing business across the jurisdictions of Europe.

TELFA has enjoyed a high degree of stability of member firms who have known each other and worked together in complete trust for years. This guarantees the high level of service given to clients. This strategy has been TELFA’s signature for more than 30 years.

TELFA now has an affiliation with USLAW giving all TELFA firms’ clients privileged access to the same quality of service in the United States.

TELFA member firms now have more than 1000 lawyers throughout Europe, and including USLAW the network consists of over 6000 professionals. Through the sustained commitment of its members, TELFA has become one of the strongest alliances of independent law firms in Europe.

The fact that the member firms of TELFA are independent offers clients a flexible alternative to the global law firm model, where internal politics sometimes compete with the needs of client service. TELFA’s focus is on client service through the provision of quality legal advice. Cross border assistance can either be managed by the member firm in your own jurisdiction, or you can instruct a member firm in one or more foreign jurisdictions directly, with a personal introduction if you prefer.
