CONSULEGIS stays absolutely current on changing global market trends in order to offer clients an effective and seamless advisory experience that incorporates not only sound legal advice from top firms –including The Legal 500 and Chambers ranked firms– but also access to the best accounting and tax firms, consulting firms, IP agencies and M&A firms.
Our members stand by our values of collaboration, strong ethics, a deep respect for confidentiality, mutual trust, honesty and friendship. They also share a strong commitment to the growth of CONSULEGIS, since it benefits our clients to continually expand the range of expertise and geographic coverage available.
New member firms are recruited mostly by way of recommendation, and all candidates are carefully vetted before they are invited to join our network.
Our approach is fresh and innovative. We cultivate creativity and forward-thinking among our members by immersing them in new ideas and technology, and by surrounding them with passionate colleagues everywhere in the world who share their strong desire to learn more about their business and that of their clients.
Exchange between members is fundamental to our growth and success, and we provide year-round opportunities for engagement in different locations to ensure that everyone participates, including:
- Two global conferences that include annual meetings
- Participation in specialist and business sector groups that cover organisational matters and substantive law developments
- International networking and other career-boosting opportunities
- Additional seminars, tradeshows, etc.
CONSULEGIS is a relationship-based professional network.

Our main sector groups are Brexit, Fintech, Data & Privacy, Real Estate, Automotive, Aviation, Energy & Environment, Food, Health, Insurance, Private Equity, Retail, Family & Estate and White Collar & Government Enforcement, Accounting & Tax. We have other groups.
CONSULEGIS is not just a legal network, it is a highly-effective solution to doing business across borders. It combines personal relationships and mutual trust with a collective knowledge of legal systems, trading practices, licensing protocols, tax structures and other business complexities.
CONSULEGIS is currently active in 40 jurisdictions across the five continents, and always looking for new member firms that share our vision and values and meet our membership criteria.
Only in 2019, 11 new members have joined our network, increasing out presence in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
We count with several regional groups (LATAM Group, Asia-Pacific Group and EMEA Group) that meet physically twice a year and virtually – through phone calls – at least two more times. These groups are formed by member firms who have offices in the specific regions, but also by some other members who very often refer work to these countries or received work from clients there.
During the regional meetings, members meets to share knowledge on various fields and discuss the challenges of the current business scenario in their regions. These meetings are highly effective for members and, at the same time,bring visibility and recognition to Consulegis within the local business world.
CONSULEGIS has increased its presence around the globe by participating actively in major events and conferences.Some of the events we have been in are European Legaltech Conference,IBA, UIA, IPBA and many others industry related.
As part of our global reach, we have established collaboration agreements with important institutions around the world,such as the IE Business School,with whom we co-organized a seminar on Fintech in Madrid. We are currently working on further collaborations with more institutions,such as Legal ®Evolution,and major legal magazines,as well as with in-house lawyers.
What differentiates CONSULEGIS from other networks that provide legal and professional networking and referral opportunities is its seamless and personal approach.Consulegis members are highly engaged with our network. This is something that can be seen in their active participation: members attend most conferences and seminars, write articles for our webpage, act as panelists during conferences, inform the Management oftheir firm’s milestones, recent activities and collaborations between members, and give any feedback that can be useful to make the most of their networking experience.
This active participation – together with the well-thought structure of our conferences, which combine focused work with plenty of time for leisure and team-building activities- provides members with all the tools they need to establish very strong, long-lasting business & personal relationships. Personal relationships generate trust and camaraderie, which are key for referrals to be successful. The Management provides members with enough space & time to brainstorm and put ideas together regarding all activities that take place in the network. The managing team listens to all members, engages in conversations with them, asks for feedback verbally and through digital surveys. We are proud of our personal approach,which differs from that of other larger networks.
Apart from the practice groups, sector groups and regional groups mentioned above, CONSULEGIS offers space and visibility for Young Lawyers,through their own Young Lawyers Committee. Young Lawyers get involved in the network, receive mentoring from senior lawyers and bring along an innovative vision of how to do business today. Young Lawyers consider the network to be a fantastic and secure platform to learn the skills they need for their jobs.
Last, but not least,it is also important to mention the strong working relationship between the Managing Director and the Advisory Board. They meet physically at least three times a year, during the conferences, and they also have several conference calls in between to keep all managing details up to date.
