Asociación Europa de AbogadosThe extensive international law practice of Jackson Law International  spans across the Atlantic through its representation of German-speaking individuals and companies headquartered in Europe. Recognizing the international scope of this firm’s practice, the Asociación Europea de Abogados honored this law firm by extending a membership invitation to Jackson Law International this year. This organization (“the AEA”) has a strict process for the selection of its membership with the intention of offering to the public legal services that are based upon a uniform quality of standard and unimpeachable ethical standards among its membership.

The AEA is recognized as the world’s largest network of international law firms. The AEA was founded in the European Union and, consequently, has strong roots in Europe. However, in time the organization has expanded on a global basis.  The Jackson Law Firm is honored to join 760 legal offices world-wide, comprising circa 5,000 individual members. The AEA is the only network of attorneys that covers each and every one of the 196 independent countries of the world.  Through its membership in this organization, Jackson Law International intends to build upon its professional relationships with attorneys practicing world-wide in the field of international law.  Given the globalization of the world we live in, individuals and corporations require more and more with each passing day legal representation throughout the world.  The clients of Jackson Law International can turn to us, knowing that if they require assistance outside of the United States, they can rely upon us for recommendations of attorneys on a world-wise basis.

German Probate Action

Germany probate, German Attorneys, German Law FirmsBy Michael R. Jackson, Shareholder

If you have a relative who passed away whose assets need to be probated in the Federal Republic of Germany, you may find yourself at a loss for what to do next. What you require is an experienced attorney to represent you in the German probate action.  However, you will ask yourself how you might possibly go about finding one on your own.

The Jackson Law Firm is proud of its international connections, whether from the standpoint of its attorneys’ respective international heritages, the firm’s professional connections to the international legal community through membership in such organizations as the EAK, direct work with attorneys from across the globe, and representation on behalf of clients from around the world. In particular, with respect to Germany, we have worked with a number of German attorneys all throughout Germany in various types of matters.  As a result, we can locate suitable German attorneys to assist you in your German probate action, as well as to work in conjunction with the German probate attorney, explaining the process to you, interpreting and explaining court-related documentation, and assisting the attorney in obtaining necessary documentation and information for your German probate action.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about The Jackson Law Firm, its attorneys, and the firm’s practice areas. Our international experience allows us to assist clients in international matters, and the firm looks forward to the opportunity to put that experience to work for you.  Feel free to contact us via email to discuss your matter.

2012 Annual Meeting of the Europӓische Anwaltskooperation – international network of European attorneys

International network of European attorneysBy Michael R. Jackson, Shareholder

In September of 2012, I attended the Annual Meeting of the Europӓische Anwaltskooperation (EAK) – an international network of European attorneys (European Attorneys’ Cooperative).  The EAK is a “europӓische wirtschaftliche Interessenvereinigung” (EWIV) or European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG), which is a legal entity created under European Community Council Regulations designed to facilitate the otherwise independent activities of its members in different countries.  In the case of the EAK, the cooperation is among independent attorneys in different countries – primarily those within Europe – and this cooperative represents an international network of attorneys able to provide legal advice to clients in their respective jurisdictions.  For the client in one country seeking to locate an experienced attorney in another country for a particular area of the law, the EAK’s network facilitates such a search.  Member attorneys of the EAK are located in the following countries:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Croatia
  • England
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Luxemburg
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Switzerland
  • Turkey
  • United States

The 2012 EAK Annual Meeting was held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, bringing together this international network of European attorneys located throughout Europe, Australia, and the United States.  I am honored to be one of only two attorneys in the entire United States who is a member of this fine organization.  Membership in the EAK requires a unanimous vote, i.e., no veto.  Last year’s EAK Annual Meeting was in Linz, Austria.  In 2013, the meeting will be in Barcelona, Spain.

Jackson Law International is proud of its international connections, whether from the standpoint of its attorneys’ respective international heritages, the firm’s professional connections to the international legal community through membership in such organizations as the EAK, direct work with attorneys from across the globe, and representation on behalf of clients from around the world.

We encourage you to explore our website – www.jacksonlawinternational.com – to learn more about Jackson Law International, the attorneys, and the firm’s practice areas.  International Litigation typically presents the courts, attorneys, and parties with unique challenges that fall outside of the general experience of law firms that have not routinely handled such matters.  Our international experience allows us to assist clients and other law firms in international matters, and the firm looks forward to the opportunity to put that experience to work for its clients.
