Swift Currie is one of 22 law firms with membership in the Network, which collectively possesses 5,000 attorneys and more than 130 offices throughout the country. The Network helps to provide a framework for defense law firms to work together by sharing trial and litigation expertise and resources for corporate and insurance company clients. The Network’s mission includes bringing high value to clients at reasonable cost while producing exceptional results.
The Network helps law firms produce innovative Continuing Legal Education (CLE) -- the Georgia Bar Association requires that active lawyers perform a minimum of 12 hours of education a year to retain their membership in the bar — and also serves as a source of business development for member firms. The Network continually works to improve its members’ client base, add new clients and develop new lines of business with existing clients. From a business development perspective, the Network focuses on in-house decision-makers at mid-cap and large-cap companies with multi-state and multi-national operations and litigation.
“We are honored to join the Network of Trial Law Firms and to be able to combine resources with other top litigation defense firms throughout the country,” Swift Currie Managing Partner Terry O. Brantley said. “We pride ourselves on our excellent client service and the value that we bring to our clients. Our membership in the Network will only enhance that.”
