Employment Law Alliance
Doklestic Repic & Gajin is the exclusive member for Serbia of the Employment Law Alliance - elite global network of independent law firms specializing in employment and labor law (www.ela.law).
The Employment Law Alliance (ELA) is the world's largest network of labor and employment lawyers. With leading employment, labor, and immigration attorneys in more than 120 countries, all 50 U.S. states and every Canadian province, the ELA provides multi-state and multi-national companies seamless and cost-effective services worldwide. International businesses benefit from the ELA’s reach and deep familiarity with both the local laws and the local courts. Clients also appreciate a single point of contact, consolidated invoicing, and regional billing rates.
ELA membership is driven by quality – both as professionals and individuals. The ELA boasts more Chambers-ranked firms than any other law firm alliance. Firms are invited to become ELA members only after a rigorous due-diligence process, including consultation with experienced in-house counsel, judges, current members, and industry leaders. ELA leadership works hard to maintain a network of legal practitioners who are not just knowledgeable, but also genuinely dedicated to exceptional client service. In a time of too many uncertainties, ELA lawyers consistently provide efficient, effective and timely counsel - 24 hours a day, seven days a week, right where they’re needed.
How ELA Works
While the ELA is comprised of separate law firms, ELA members have established strong personal relationships with their colleagues around the world – which means clients are assured of getting a single, seamless legal resource that is truly integrated and working in their best interest.
Single Point of Contact - For multi-state or multi-national clients, ELA provides a relationship manager who will assemble a team of experts in each jurisdiction in which you do business; coordinate efforts across the team to ensure continuity, consistency, quality and responsiveness; and serve as the primary contact for questions or concerns about service and billing.
Consolidated Billing at Local Firm Rates - Want a single, consolidated bill? ELA can easily do that. And unlike multi-office law firms, whose high rates often support their costly global infrastructure, ELA clients are charged local, hourly rates by regional firms.
The Global Employer Handbook
The ELA Global Employer Handbook is a free, online resource that provides ELA clients and subscribers with practical, concrete and up-to-date information on the most important labor and employment laws in more than 135 countries around the world, including all 50 U.S. states and every Canadian province.
