Full members of The Parlex Group must comply with specific membership criteria including having significant expertise in fundamental practice areas, the ability to provide advice in good English whenever necessary, modern business systems and at least medium size in their jurisdiction. Members are reviewed regularly in order to ensure that the membership criteria are maintained, to offer assistance in their development and that of The Parlex Group overall.
The Parlex Group holds two meetings each year (in May and November), each hosted by a member firm in a different city. These meetings allow the network’s management and business matters to be discussed and strategic development of the Group to be agreed and progressed.
The management of the day-to-day activities of The Parlex Group is entrusted to a Management Committee, made up of representatives from five member firms. The Management Committee meets bi-monthly by teleconference and face to face bi-annually.
The cooperation amongst members in academic activities and the continuous education of practitioners is encouraged and promoted within The Parlex Group for the purpose of "knowledge exchange" on areas of practice, establishing special interest groups, organising law conferences at the May meeting and supporting short term exchanges of young lawyers amongst member firms.
