Your International Solution.
Through its membership and active involvement in the Lex Mundi international network of law firms, Maynard Cooper is able to provide advice from a trusted legal professional in virtually any jurisdiction inside or outside of the United States within a short period of time. This resource can be invaluable to our clients not only in the transactional context, but in other scenarios as well. Recently, one of our clients learned that a competitor planned to have a defamatory article published about our client’s products in a United Kingdom magazine. The article could have had a very negative effect on our client and its industry. Within a matter of hours, we were able to contact attorneys in the United Kingdom and prepare an appropriate plan of action. We also engaged and worked with Swedish counsel within the same timeframe, as there was a threat that the article would also be published in Sweden. Based on the plan that we formulated with our international contacts, we were able to halt the publication of the inaccurate article, and prevent a potentially significant amount of damage to our client. Through Lex Mundi's exhaustive and continuous vetting process of its member firms and our ongoing relationships with most of these firms, Maynard Cooper is in an enviable position of having outstanding contacts in almost any foreign jurisdiction, which is critical in connection with a cross-border project.
