TELFA's vision is to create and maintain a network of independent law firms that share a similar ethos. TELFA member firms do not "sell products", rather we build relationships with our clients so as to become trusted advisers allowing us to serve our clients more effectively.
Just as the foundation of good service for our clients is built on strong personal relationships, so it is among the lawyers that make up the membership of TELFA. The lawyers in TELFA get to know one another both professionally, through working together on client assignments, and socially - a UK client needing advice and assistance in Italy, is likely to be told "You need to see my friend Alessandro in Milan...".
This bond between member firms is built because the lawyers enjoy each other's company -lunch with Philip in Copenhagen is fun; a beer with Jasper in Berlin is entertaining and morning coffee and a croissant with Emmanuel in Paris sets one up for the day!
