Alliance - IUROPE (a European Economic Interest Grouping - ‘EEIG') is a European alliance of prominent independent law firms consisting of:
Belgium - Van Huffelen & Co
France - Kalliopé
Germany - CBH - Cornelius, Bartenbach, Haesemann & Partner
Italy - Franco Baudino e Associati
Spain - Fornesa Abogados
The Netherlands - Van Iersel Luchtman Advocaten
Business law firms - Totaling more than 300 lawyers, this alliance of mid-size ‘full service’ law firms offers expertise in almost all areas of business law to national and international business clients active in continental Europe.
Excellence & quality - All firms are leading players in their respective jurisdictions. They all have deliberately avoided merging either with "Big 4" firms or with global law firms so as to continue offering value to clients who are after expert advice on national and European law at an attractively reasonable cost.
Experienced international teams - By working together frequently, members of IUROPE have developed extensive experience in carrying out together complex cross-border transactions and projects. Lawyers have learned to work with one another and have built long-term professional and personal relationships.
European Network - Members of IUROPE also have a long tradition of working with firms in almost all other European countries and have developed over the years unique relationships with some of them, which are now considered preferred partners of IUROPE in their respective jurisdictions.
Independence - One of the key feature of IUROPE membership is the fierce independence of each firm. One of the consequence is that each firm works with its own tradename under the IUROPE umbrella.
