Euroadvocaten has a new name and website
Go to: Globaladvocaten at

In 2016 Euroadvocaten changed its name to Globaladvocaten. For a number of years, starting in the early 2000's, this was the official website for THE EUROPEAN LAW GROUP also known as Euroadvocaten.
The new owners of the domain have chosen to use the site's 2003 & 2016 archived content to recreate a brief glimpse of the original website.
NOTE: The head office's address and telephone number remain the same., but the email address has changed to reflect the new name.

If you have inadvertently ended up here while searching for the Globaladvocaten network, their current website is found at:

Euroadvocaten is delighted to announce that it has changed its name to Globaladvocaten.

The group has changed its name due to the globalisation of its client’s across the network and has adapted accordingly.

All of the member firms are mid-sized independent firms who know their own legal market inside out. These firms belong to a network that prides itself on understanding their clients’ needs and can offer expert legal advice in other countries as and when needed.

The group recently welcomed two new member firms from the USA. Bartko, Zankel, Bunzel & Miller, located in San Francisco, California and Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Founded in 1990, the network has grown year and year and now includes over 370 partners, over 800 lawyers and covers 27 countries. This enables clients to tap into expert lawyers providing worldwide solutions.

Globaladvocaten is ranked within the top banding for “Leading Regional Law Firm Networks” by Chambers and Partners

Globaladvocaten Chairman Christopher Roos commented: “I am extremely pleased that the network is continuing to expand and the firms we are taking on are of a very high calibre. This is a very exciting time for Globaladvocaten and am certain that more and more firms will join given the benefits the network provides.”

Comment By Rob: I worked membership outreach for the organization and was very aware of the stature - the respect afforded this group. Every firm wanted in. But then our US operations head told us that a search for Euro Avocaten in Google yielded some very inappropriate results. Instead of being associated with our prestigious legal association, we were linked with an anti-abortion political group and, bizarrely, a company selling janitorial supplies. Both of these sites were ranked above us. This is page one of Google's search results, where we're below these other sites, making it appear that we're either a political action group with an agenda or a random supplier of cleaning products - both scenarios being the opposite of what we represent. Some of our members were outraged and as a result we contracted with a reputation management service for an evaluation. These companies and specialists like them can remove the bad results on Google's page one by pushing them down in the search. But these removal actions are expensive and don't happen quickly. Just when some firms with offices in the US started to get very loud (angry) the results changed and more accurately reflected reality. But this was a wake up call for the inadvertent power of Google and the harm it can cause when its software screws up.
