Employment law alliance L&E Global has expanded into Asia Pacific with the addition of New Zealand firm Swarbrick Beck Mackinnon to its group.
Swarbrick Beck Mackinnon, a three-partner firm based in Auckland, is the eighth firm to join the alliance since its launch in January 2011 (24 January 2011).
The firm is the first member of L&E Global outside Europe and the US. Jackson Lewis is the alliance’s US member, with Europe represented by firms in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Dutch firm Palthe Oberman was the most recent firm to join the network (13 April 2011).
The alliance’s executive director Stephan Swinkels said the addition of Swarbrick Beck Mackinnon “greatly strengthens” the group’s global footprint.
