First Law International ("FLI") is the Brussels-based hub of a global network of over 80+ independent, national law firms known as FLI NET™.
FLI is the headquarters to the only EU-based, Elite Global network (as ranked by Chambers Global 6th year in a row) of over 80+ independent full-service, high quality law firms with its head offices in Brussels and regional office in Houston.
FLI specialize in providing a wide range of multinational clients from Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Heavy-industry, Life Sciences, Retail, Real Estate, Finance, Semiconductor, Oil & Gas, Services, and IT among others with valuable cross-border legal support on a global basis.
FLI is powered by former General Counsels of Fortune companies who act as deputies or assistants to the in-house legal departments of multinational clients while simultaneously wearing a business-developer hat. FLI’s extensive in-house cross-border experience makes it uniquely qualified to coordinate and manage legal services rendered by FLI NET Member firms.
Over the course of 17 years, FLI has expanded worldwide at a very robust pace to over 80+ countries, and growing continuously. Each local firm is a top-quality independent national firm, according to Chambers & Partners / Legal 500, and is either top-tier or top of the second-tier in its respective jurisdiction.
Each Member firm is carefully selected and vetted to ensure that it meets FLI's high quality standards, common culture of timely responsiveness, and customer satisfaction.
