The International Network of Boutique Law Firms has signed up 250 members since Steven Spielvogel founded the organization in 2004.

Spielvogel, a former Sullivan & Cromwell associate, told the New York Times he learned there that reputation is important. That’s why he is selective about the firms that are permitted to join at a cost of $1,500 a year.

Now a law firm can find a lawyer in another city with just one phone call to a network member.

“The network is designed to supplement pre-existing legal relationships,” Spielvogel said. “It’s not about paying a fee to get listed in a directory. The standards are very rigorous and you can feel a certain level of comfort.”
