Membership in these networks is by invitation only to select firms that have demonstrated quality service and industry leadership. These strategic relationships allow AP&S to call upon resources all over the world to serve our clients to the utmost expectations. Member firms of these law firm networks practice independently and are not in a relationship for the joint practice of law.
