Mackrell International (MI), one of the world’s largest networks of independent law firms, has secured its ninth consecutive ranking as a leading global network in the Chambers Directory, a premier legal industry directory.

The Chambers Global Guide ranks the top lawyers, law firms and law firm networks in over 190 countries across the world.  Rankings are based on in-depth review by a dedicated and experienced team of researchers.

Sussman Shank LLP, a member of MI since 2007, is one of 100 member firms representing 4,500 lawyers in more than 60 countries.  The network continues selectively to grow its coverage across the globe, focusing on high-calibre, dynamic, full-service law firms who will gain from and add value to the MI ecosystem and provide exceptional client-service.

The MI network delivers agile, specialist expertise and insight locally and internationally for both new and existing clients – and for member firms.

Sussman Shank Special Counsel Howard Levine said, “Our clients trust us with their interests, both personal and professional – and their needs are increasingly internationally.  Membership in MI allows us to cater for those needs; MI acts as a seamless and strongly-bonded extension of our partnership, and that’s a critical tool for our clients to use now and in the future.  It’s a very powerful resource for all our legal professionals.”

Keith Heddle, Mackrell International’s Managing Director, said; “The unbroken Chambers Recognition is testament to this network’s continued excellence – not just in legal and commercial terms, but primarily due to its vibrant and brilliant people, people who will be there for you in an instant if you need them.  And that’s no doubt why we saw unprecedented growth and connectivity throughout the toughest of years.  We are ‘family’ and we stand shoulder to shoulder, with each other and with our clients.”

More than 25% of MI member firms are ranked in the Chambers directories including over 230 leading individuals.
