Capell & Howard attorney and shareholder Barbara J. Wells said, “By joining Nextlaw Global Referral Network, we can now provide our clients with the best of all worlds by continuing to provide them with quality local expertise in Alabama while also being able to direct them to top tier lawyers in other jurisdictions where they need legal counsel and business advice.
“We can build on our trusted relationships with our clients by putting the full resources of the global legal powerhouse at their disposal,” Barbara said.
Nextlaw CEO Jeff Modisett said: “We’re proud to have Capell & Howard as part of our network. We’re only as good as the quality of our member firms, and Capell & Howard makes us stronger and better able to meet the needs of our other members’ clients in Alabama and across the Southeast.”
Nextlaw was created by Dentons, the largest law firm in the world. The network, which is free to join, employs a detailed screening system to guarantee the quality of its member firms and has developed proprietary technology to allow members to identify lawyers at other member firms with the appropriate experience where clients need legal counsel.
