Practicing International Law
There is no consensus on a precise and “mathematically given” legal definition of what an International Lawyer is or does. However, at InheritEstate, we have our interpretation for which we stand responsible. In our opinion, an “International Lawyer” should have a Juris Doctor license from, at least, one bar association in the world. In addition, this legal professional should hold one or more credentials. For example, having a law license in more than one country. On the other hand, an international lawyer should be fluent in two or more languages. For instance, having lived in another country for a considerable amount of time would enable a legal professional to manage the language, the culture, as well as the customs in order to practice law properly.
As a matter of fact, these conditions entitle that lawyer to be practice law in two or more jurisdictions. Another possibility is to offer subordinate assistance with a local lawyer. Now, it is mandatory that all foreign lawyers -from a jurisdiction different from where they are licensed-, MUST work under the supervision and professional responsibility of a local licensed attorney. In addition, this local attorney will be professionally responsible for all lawyers working under their supervision. In fact, this admits no exceptions.
