Global Law is the legal know-how app launched by Trans-European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA), the international alliance of law firms across Europe, in 2014. The English-language app offers every international company the opportunity to gather global know-how on legal matters. The app provides companies with international operations with 24-hour mobile access to relevant information on the legislation and regulations in the markets in which they operate. In addition to the app, the initiators has also launched a completely rejuvenated platform: www.legalknowledgeportal.com.
The app is a logical extension of the platform and aims to make international law articles easier to find and read. The app selects information based on the user’s own personal preferences, and offers a choice of jurisdictions and relevant countries. The platform has been developed for use on desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. The information is drawn from an ever-growing database of up-to-date articles on international legislation. Some 70 law firms in Europe, the United States and the BRIC countries, including the firms associated with USLAW lawyers network in the US, Canada and South America, all provide know-how on their own jurisdiction for the app. The number of associated law firms is still growing and firms are added in the near future.
In Norway, Advokatfirmaet Svedrup participates in the Global law app by contributing regular updates on legal developments in our jurisdiction.
The Global Law app is available for free download via the official Apple app store under the name ‘Global Law’ or via the website www.legalknowledgeportal.com.
