CRESCO LEGAL GROUP_

Nowadays legal transactions are not confined to one country or one jurisdiction but rather cross boarder. The world is not a village of independent houses but is a highly interlinked network, where business processes often pass boarders and where investments are done globally and not limited to one country.

CRESCO Legal offers legal services on a global level thanks to its presence in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and North America, helping companies to overcome the burden of engaging and coordinating law firms in different jurisdictions and barriers, allowing a flawless handling of modern international legal requirements.

By bridging the gap CRESCO Legal serves as a network capable of handling many or all clients needs across disciplines and geographies, which in turn creates tremendous efficiency in terms of consistency, quality, speed and overall value.
 
CRESCO Legal’s success will depend on its capability, both to play to its global reach and to understand its local strength. We create and maintain global processes, harness its ability for the consistency and coordination of its lawyers and services across jurisdictions, practice areas, 
market sectors and offices and exhibit its potential to use accumulated and distributed experience to avoid all cross boarder problems for the client.

Our offices and its personnel are member of several associations and alliances:

JURISDICTIONS_

In broad terms the world is dominated by three big legal systems: civil, common and sharia law.

The first one originates from Roman Law and is predominant in Continental Europe, the Russian Federation, Central and South America and in former colonies of France, Netherlands, Spain and Portugal. Its main characteristics are codified legislation.

The second one is to be found in the United Kingdom and Ireland as well as North America, Australia, New Zealand, India and other former colonies of the British Empire.

Its main characteristics is judge made precedent law. Common law is based on broad principles.
 
The third one is to be found in all Arabic speaking countries, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA); its main characteristic is that it is considered legalisation based on the principles of the Quran and has a divine character. The most interesting countries are the ones with combined systems as in; Scotland, Malta, Cyprus, Quebec, Louisiana (USA), UAE, South Africa and some islands in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean.
Often one believes that lawyers only have experience in one legal system in which they are educated, but at CRESCO Legal our lawyers have a wide knowledge and understanding of all the three legal systems which makes CRESCO Legal unique and versatile in its sort.

CRESCO Legal to use Artificial Intelligence for the benefit of its clients_

CRESCO Legal is proud to announce, that it has closed an agreement with the UK based firm Luminance Technologies Ltd. for the use of their artificial intelligence powered software Luminance.

Luminance is the leading artificial intelligence platform for the legal profession. The revolutionary technology is founded on the latest breakthroughs in pattern recognition and machine intelligence.

Today, corporations are drowning in documents and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep-up with tracking of deadlines, monitoring risks and claiming of warranties. Sophisticated machine learning systems, however, are incredibly good at digesting data and will help the team of CRESCO Legal to provide an accurate and efficient support when dealing with high amounts of contracts.

The MD of CRESCO Holding, Mr. Michael Waechter has given the following statement: “By partnering with the leading providers of artificial intelligence solutions, CRESCO secures access to the most advanced and tested technologies available in the market.
