How We Work

While the ELA is comprised of separate law firms, our members have established strong personal relationships with their colleagues around the world that are built on trust. Members attend numerous global conferences, professional development programs, and regional meetings where they share best practices and collaborate on solving employment law matters for the world's best employers.  Collectively, they share a passion for putting forth innovative labor and employment solutions for multinational firms across the globe. Clients who work with the ELA benefit from a single, seamless legal resource that is truly integrated.

Single Point of Contact

ELA provides a relationship manager for multi-state or multi-national employers in need of a team of local experts in multiple jurisdictions. Clients are assigned a primary ELA contact who coordinates service and assures continuity, consistency, quality and responsiveness from every law firm assigned to the legal matter.

Consolidated Billing at Local Firm Rates

Want a single, consolidated bill? We can easily do that. Unlike multi-office law firms, whose high rates often support their costly global infrastructure, ELA clients are charged local, hourly rates by regional firms. Why pay Miami rates for work performed in Puerto Rico when a local San Juan ELA lawyer can provide more cost effective and efficient service?

Whether it is a multi-state or a multi-national project, we have a team in place to respond to your needs for innovative, cost-effective HR legal solutions.  The ELA has a proven track record of providing the highest quality service to some of the world’s most sophisticated companies- Why not reach out to us with your next RFP?
