Ally Law, a global legal network that includes more than 70 independent member firms and nearly 3,000 lawyers worldwide, is pleased to announce that its members have elected the organization’s 2021–2022 Executive Board. The vote was finalized during Ally Law’s Annual General Meeting held online May 26–27, 2021.
The membership elected Paul Franke, a partner in Denver, Colorado-based law firm Moye White, to serve as Ally Law’s president for a two-year term beginning May 26, 2021, and continuing until May 2023.

He has handled matters across the United States and represented global corporations on claims arising in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Canada and South America.
Said Franke, “It is my great honor to have been selected by the member delegates of Ally Law to serve as our organization’s President. In 2020, our network celebrated its 30th anniversary in the midst of a global pandemic. During that time, we launched a number of successful initiatives, continued to expand our network and cultivated a new generation of leadership. I look forward to further growth and increased opportunities to serve clients worldwide.”
