Interleges is honoured to be associated with the ELI through its sponsorship of the 2024 Young Lawyers Award. The Award has been sponsored by Interleges since 2018.

Interleges was founded in 1989 by a group of like-minded law firms who saw the opportunity of strengthening links in other jurisdictions at a time when boundaries in Europe were coming down. As such it shares the aims of the ELI in learning from the achievements of the different legal cultures, endorsing the value of comparative knowledge and taking a genuinely international perspective in dealing with legal issues. Interleges has grown from its roots in Europe and is now a well-established and closely linked alliance of independent law firms with offices across the countries of the European Union, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North and South America. Through Interleges, both business organisations and individuals have access to specialist lawyers who have experience in representing clients from different countries.
