If our client needs to do business anywhere in the world, from Texas to Belgium and beyond, we have a comprehensive network of firms meet their needs. 

What Clients Have to Say

“For me, it’s people who really understand me, understand our company, understand our culture.  I’ve always been super impressed by how they’ve adapted to what our needs are, to what our strategies are and to me that’s more than just an outside firm, it’s more than outside counsel.  That’s somebody that’s a business partner.  The reason I hire ALFA firms and particularly ALFA lawyers, because I hire lawyers not firms, is because they get results.”  Todd Fulks, Associate General Counsel, Clayton Homes.  See what other ALFA clients and lawyers say about our exemplary network.  ALFA International Video


Carter Conboy was carefully selected as an ALFA International member firm after a rigorous screening process which accepts only law firms that are considered “best-in-class” garnering local, state, national, and international recognition and awards.  Our clients can feel confident that they will get the highest quality representation in a broad range of industry, practices, subject areas. Carter Conboy was designated as the ALFA International “Law Firm of the Year” in 2016.


Carter Conboy became a member of ALFA International when it was originally formed as a small network of trial counsel. Over the years, ALFA recognized the shift in the litigation market and expanded its model and include commercial, corporate, regulatory, and transactional attorneys and law firms, proving our Firm and our clients with a comprehensive preeminent legal network.


Carter Conboy can draw upon the collective wisdom and expertise of the expansive ALFA network to deliver highly effective legal solutions to our clients.  If we need a particular industry expert, we can solicit the shared resources of the entire ALFA network.  Alternatively, if a client has legal needs outside of our practice or jurisdiction, our Firm has access to a comprehensive global network of attorneys and law firms to meet their needs.


Membership in ALFA Internationally is regionally exclusive, making our ability to collaborate with other member firms accepted and encouraged as there is no concern for competition over the same legal business. We can be client-focused by forging these strong bonds and, by pooling our resources with the ALFA network, we can provide committed, comprehensive services in a range of specialties, trades, and industries that are not typically found in an individual law firm.


By selecting Carter Conboy, clients have the knowledge and resources of the ALFA network at their disposal. We assist fellow ALFA members on a regular basis, exchanging non-privileged research, consulting on trial and transaction strategies, providing insight on judges and expert witnesses, and otherwise helping fellow members better serve their clients.  Having a resource pool as comprehensive as ALFA is a win-win for our clients.


ALFA and its member firms are practice and industry educators. Throughout the year, ALFA presents a broad range of best-in-class educational programs, including multi-day seminars, one-day programs, webinars, teleseminars, compendia, and newsletters. The educational topics presented are relevant to our client’s industries and business and is another example of how Carter Conboy can facilitate the pooling of knowledge and resources to benefit our clients.  


Carter Conboy understands that today’s clients, including in-house counsel, are under increased pressure to contain outside counsel fees. We strive to alleviate that burden by providing cost-effective legal services. We manage our matters conservatively, being cost-conscious of our client’s business.  We use ALFA resources, including its pooling of education, knowledge, and resources, as just one way to contain legal costs.

Geographic Reach

Carter Conboy has access to a vast network of exceptional lawyers, eliminating the risk our clients associate with hiring counsel in unfamiliar jurisdictions.  For example, if our client needs to do business outside of our jurisdiction, we have a national and international network of 150 exceptional law firms to meet their needs.
