CLLC is an international law firm operating through several separately established and regulated legal entities that provide legal and other client services in accordance with the relevant laws of the jurisdictions in which they respectively operate. Details of the different CLLC offices can be found here.
CLLC’s business is governed by the Corporate Law & Legal Compliance Group SAL. The members, partners or other principals of the various entities that provide client services in those regions are members of Corporate Law & Legal Compliance Group SAL, unless they are prevented from doing so due to regulatory restrictions.
CLLC (US) (a partner in a Texas limited liability company) practices law in the United States of America.
The use of the name “CLLC” and words or phrases such as “firm”, “law firm” or “international legal practice” is for convenience only and does not imply that all or any such entities are in partnership together or accept responsibility for the acts or omissions of each other. Legal responsibility for the provision of services to clients is defined in engagement terms entered into between clients and the relevant CLLC entity and these should be relied upon in determining liability for the services provided. Absent the explicit agreement and consent of both entities involved, no CLLC entity is responsible for the acts or omissions of, nor has any authority to obligate or otherwise bind, any other CLLC entity.
In accordance with the common terminology used in professional service organizations, we use the term “partner” in this website to refer to a person who is a member, partner or person of equivalent standing or authority in an individual practicing entity.
In jurisdictions where CLLC does not have its own presence, legal services are provided through associations with leading independent local law firms which we refer to as Associated Firms. Associated Firms are affiliated with CLLC and have adopted various practices and procedures that are aligned with CLLC entities but they are not themselves part of or financially integrated with any CLLC entities. Associated Firms are owned and managed by their respective members, partners or other principals and not by partners of any CLLC entities.
