Why the Network

When I am in areas of the country that I’m unfamiliar with, The Trial Network gives me reassurance and validation of the quality of the lawyers in those areas. That’s the genius of the Network."
—John Cochrane, General Counsel, RAZOR USA


About the Trial Network

Founded in 1993, The Network of Trial Law Firms, Inc. remains committed to the art of strengthening strategic business relationships amongst the country’s leading trial law firms.

To that end, our meticulously selective membership process is centered on smart growth. A brief glance at our membership will show preeminent legal representation within key geographical jurisdictions. Leading publications and legal awards consistently recognize our members as dominant in their respective fields.

In addition, our acute focus on creating business development opportunities is second to none. For twenty-five years, our world-class Litigation Management SuperCourse continues to deliver a comprehensive three-day CLE seminar conducted by thought leaders within litigation. Each presentation is delivered in bite-sized 18-minute intervals allowing our audience to digest and retain timely topics.

Our mission is straightforward; connect the world’s leading corporations with world-class legal experts. It is this driving force that has led us to over 5,000 attorneys in 24 separate and independent trial law firms practicing in over 120 offices throughout the United States.
