B&D Joins Lex Mundi
The World's Leading
Association of Independent Law Firms

The Firm joined Lex Mundi, the World's Leading Association of Independent Law Firms, when its Monaco office was invited to become a member of this important group of independent legal professionals.  In a global economy, clients expect their attorneys to have established systematic contacts around the world. Attorneys, however, must be cost-effective in establishing these relationships and managing internal resources.  B&D believes membership in Lex Mundi and in The Appleton Group Legal Network, or TAGLaw, that the Firm joined last year, will better enable the Firm to meet these objectives.
