An iPhone App for Finding Lawyers Worldwide

Looking for a lawyer in Latvia? Need an accountant in Australia? Well, you guessed it, there’s an app for that.

The MSI Global Alliance, an international association of 250 independent law and accounting firms in 105 countries, yesterday released Advisors2Go, an iPhone app that provides a directory of its member firms and of key contacts within each firm.

It allows users to search for a firm by location and type of service. For each firm, it provides key contacts and links to directly phone or e-mail the firm. It also provides a brief profile of each firm.

It can also be used to search for lawyers and accountants by name.

Google Maps is used to provide a visual overview of member firms’ locations within each country. Red pins designate law firms while purple pins indicate accounting firms.
