June 6, 2013, San Francisco. The Webb Legal Group has signed a memorandum of understanding to become one of the firms in a small but prestigious international consortium of law firms. The signing ceremony took place as part of the 2013 Programme of the Belgian Economic Mission to the United States of America. The signing ceremony was presided over by His Royal Highness Prince Philippe of Belgium and other dignitaries, and announced to the press.
The Webb Legal Group focuses its practice on assisting businesses and individuals faced with complex legal problems. It is based in San Francisco, California, but assists clients in matters throughout the U.S. and the world, often by partnering with top attorneys located internationally, including those in the new international consortium.
In the Memorandum of Understanding, the parties of the international consortium pledged to join their efforts and commitment to share experience, expertise, resources and value to the benefit of Belgian companies and entrepreneurs doing business in the USA, or intending to do so. They also pledged to share their resources and experience in assisting American-based clients wishing to expand their business to the European Union.
Mr. Webb stated, “We are looking forward to working with our friends in the capital of the European Union, and continuing the relationships we have established over the years for the mutual benefit of our existing clients, and for those for whom doing business abroad is the next logical step.”
Before founding the Webb Legal Group, Mr. Webb studied international and comparative business law at the Notre Dame Law School in London, England, which well prepared him for a career assisting those involved in international business litigation. As part of his studies, he published an article in the Journal of Legislation entitled The International Legal Aspects of the Lithuanian Secession, 17 Journal of Legislation 309 (1991).
