and on the absolute conviction that it is necessary to enlarge
national borders, knowledge and practice to give a larger and better service to our clients.

be in a position to meet their clients´ needs in the international
However, it is also acknowledged that in most cases, globalization
does not enable small or medium-sized law firms to provide,
in other countries, the same level of services given to clients
in their home countries.

by incorporating independent medium sized law firms in different
jurisdictions and/or countries of the five continents with
the same spirit and with a sense of international attitude
under the BGI logo.
Where there is a need to intervene in a case, clients can
be referred to the appropriate BGI
member in the corresponding jurisdiction or country. When
dealing with supra-national cases, there is close cooperation
among the BGI firms involved.
In any case, it is extremely important that clients trust
the lawyers and professionals handling matters for them. Therefore,
BGI members are hand-picked: its growth has been and will be measured given
the high level required from every member in satisfying strict conditions
from a professional and personal point of view.

world, has selected a large and complete organizational structures
of independent law firms from the five continents specialized
