International lawyers network
The AEA is an international network of offices situated all over the world. The AEA covers all the 193 countries that are in the United Nations plus Taiwan, Kosovo and Palestine. No other lawyers covers so many countries. The second, the International Bar Association covers 125 countries. The third, UIA, Union Internationale des Avocats covers 110. The AEA has the most prestigious and important offices in each country within its group along with the best professionals. The network was founded in the European Union and with time has been growing and expanding to a more global scale, starting with the European countries that were not part of to the European Union and then expanding to countries in America, Asia and Africa. In most of the countries all the larger cities have AEA offices, and some cities have more than one. The offices had been chosen rigorously following the criteria the AEA require, professionalism, competence and effectiveness of each professional chosen.
