About The Global Elite

Why have Legal Week created the Global Elite Membership Group?

As an impartial third party, Legal Week’s Private Client team have been inundated with requests to bring together the right people, at the right time, in the right place to share information and build trusted relationships.

We recognise that your clients’ global footprints are ever expanding, making it harder to simply rely on personal connections in order to provide them with the best advice. A unique feature of our service is our profiling system, which enables us to introduce you to trusted lawyers and other experts who have been recommended by our global network of contacts. We can also help you to reaffirm existing relationships by inviting nominated individuals to the bespoke dinners.

We formalise this process by inviting you to itemise your requirements in your membership profile, which can be updated depending on your requirements. We use this confidential information to build the guest lists for the prestigious dinners you have opted to attend.

This means that, as and when new client needs arise, you will be sure to find – or re-discover – the right partner(s) without delay. After all, why try and find the needle in the haystack if the Global Elite can deliver the needle straight to you?

We connect remarkable minds, in remarkable places.

Who is invited?

Senior private client lawyers, trust and estate litigators, barristers and senior officers (within single family offices) are handpicked to join the Global Elite membership group, based upon the Private Client Global Elite Directory recommendations that the Legal Week team have received over the past 2 years.

Much like Legal Week’s Private Client Forums, the membership group will be strictly monitored to ensure the utmost quality. For the bespoke dinners, we involve a maximum of 15 participants per dinner, further supporting our commitment to quality.

Private client lawyers and litigators also have the option to include their ‘rising star’ as a complimentary add-on to their membership. This rising star will join Legal Week’s rapidly growing Global Elite Ones To Watch membership group, consisting of the aspiring and inspiring private client leaders of tomorrow.
