About Legal Language Services

Who we are

Legal Language Services is the premier source of legal and financial translation in the United States.

In 1983, we opened our headquarters in the Financial District of New York City, making ourselves immediately accessible to some of the world’s foremost law and financial firms.

The initial mission was simple: To provide law firms, sole practitioners and even governments with high quality translation, interpreting and transcription services while meeting strict deadlines and ensuring confidentiality.

How we can help you

Legal Language has assisted in the successful conclusion of tens of thousands of legal proceedings.

We provide translation, interpreting and transcription in more than 200 languages, service of process in more than 90 countries and our interpreters have facilitated communication in more than 50 countries around the world.

We’ve yet to meet a problem that we couldn’t solve.

When the Turkish government required the translation of technical documentation and related materials for a precondition for the purchase of military equipment, we met their needs for quality and speed.

Legal Language accurately translated various technical documents into Turkish, including an array of marketing materials, instruction manuals and detailed specifications and drawings which required special graphic expertise. We performed this task under tight time constraints and with special attention to the confidential nature of the materials.

When a multi-billion dollar merger of two companies required rapid and cost-effective translation of a large volume of documents including sensitive and confidential material, we were up to the challenge.

Our in-house staff provided certified legal translations of literally thousands of pages of documentation in a timely manner. Work was performed on our secure premises, and we exclusively used in-house translators to ensure confidentiality. LLS not only met all deadlines, but also created a database of documents to manage the workflow both during and after the production. Government approval for the international merger was obtained.

When a group of attorneys needed assistance in digesting a large volume of financial and general business documents, Legal Language had a swift response.

We were able to help the attorneys catalogue their discovery documents by providing a team of translators on-site to help isolate pertinent documents in a timely and cost effective fashion. Select documents were then translated in full through our corporate offices. LLS then certified these documents for presentations in a formal legal setting.

What’s more, on the same matter LLS assisted in the deposition of international executives and international evidence taking.

More than 30 years of experience

On top of the above examples, our reputation for quality and accuracy quickly afforded us the privilege of working with most of the major legal and financial firms in the US.

In 1986 we provided interpreting, transcription and translation services in the pivotal Rainbow Warrior case, and we have since worked with the US Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, and become consultants to the US Department of State for negotiations at The Hague.

Our in-house attorneys see in a week what most attorneys see in a lifetime of international litigation. And it’s no wonder — over the years, our offices have expanded across the US, and our services have grown to include international service of process, evidence taking abroad, transportation, legal discovery services, skip tracing, asset searches, enforcement of judgments abroad, and most recently, analysis and assessment of recorded evidence.

Legal Language is committed to excellence. Using our team of in-house attorneys and linguists with specialized knowledge of legal vocabulary and protocol, we provide our clients with on-time, on-budget results.
