|The Client's Voice|
“As a Dinsmore client with business operations across North America and 10 countries in Western Europe, lawyers in your firm have previously engaged ALFA firms in other jurisdictions for and on our behalf. While I liked the convenience associated with Dinsmore lawyers being able to quickly access/utilize local counsel via this established network, I did not fully appreciate the select nature of an ALFA membership until I attended the International Client Seminar. The fact that Dinsmore is THE ALFA firm in Cincinnati, as well as other geographies, really distinguishes your firm from its peers from my perspective. Simply stated, I view Dinsmore's affiliation with ALFA as a real "value added" feature. It is great to know that if a Pomeroy matter requires legal counsel in remote US jurisdictions or elsewhere around the globe, Dinsmore can tap into a network of full-service law firms with capabilities and lawyers that have been subject to a specialized screening and selection process. Dinsmore's ALFA membership is meaningful to me because it serves to expand the scope and reach of your firm's capabilities in my mind.”

“I have had an association with ALFA and ALFA member firms for almost 13 years. During those years I have established very important and beneficial relationships with some of the best lawyers in the country. Just as important to me, I have had the opportunity of becoming acquainted and privileged to be called friend, with some of the best people that I have had the pleasure to know. I know the representation, counsel and fairness (fees) by ALFA lawyers has been greatly appreciated.
Because I have matters from time to time in almost every jurisdiction, I have greatly appreciated the resources made available through ALFA seminars and publications. These materials allow me immediate access to critical information and learned summaries that have influenced my decisions, particularly when time is of the essence.”

“At Cracker Barrel we have found that working with a legal network (ALFA International) offers us an excellent method for meeting two significant objectives: the immediacy of on-site law firm resources across the United States, where our businesses operate, combined with the first person attorney-client relationship and legal focus found in many smaller, local business law firms.”

"ALFA can be considered as a source for exceptional legal assistance. Member firms consistently demonstrate a commitment to the highest standard of professionalism as measured in part by responsiveness and integrity. In addition, the network of firms supports each other, and this network serves as a valuable resource for any client of a specific ALFA firm. ALFA publications, seminars, and net meetings all contribute to the value of engaging the services of an ALFA firm.”

"I have been working with ALFA International firms for 15 years with great success. The combination of sound legal analysis and reasonable attorney's fees, coupled with the convenience of a screened member law firm in most major cities makes ALFA perfect for a business with locations in 47 states."

"My introduction to ALFA came through attendance, via our ALFA member external counsel’s invitation, at the International Client Seminar approximately 5 years ago. Since that time, I have attended each annual International Client Seminar, not only as a guest but participated on several ALFA panel discussions. This opportunity has offered me the ability to establish a wealth of relationships with member firms throughout the world. I have found that the use of the “ALFA” term when making contact with a firm in another country or even domestically, provides an expedited route to excellent response time.
Personally I have used several ALFA member firms, both domestically and internationally, all of which have upheld a high standard of professionalism. The ALFA network is a valuable resource for my company and if utilized, should be for any client of a member firm."
