HG.org - Overview

HG.org was one of the very first online law and government information sites. It was founded in January of 1995 by Lex Mundi, a large network of independent law firms. The objective of HG.org is to make law, government and related professional information easily and freely accessible to the legal profession, businesses and consumers.

HG.org’s leadership in this arena, for 20 years, has positioned it as one of the most trafficked legal sites on the Internet. Visitors come to the site seeking law-related assistance and information. 

Today, HG.org is one of the world’s largest non-subscription legal information site containing more than 4 million pages of edited content. It includes a directory of law firms and networks covering 195 countries with 5,000 cities in 260 practice areas. Its expert witness directory covers expertise in 1,500 general areas and 700 diseases and medical conditions.

There are thousands of articles, hundreds of specific law pages, information on 150 legal networks, 2,000 law schools in 130 countries, employment listings, 4,000+ videos, legal events and links to governments and agencies worldwide. All the information is easily found by searching through HG.org and online. 

Lawyers' Global Directory

Lawyers Directory - HG.org sought to change the law firm advertising model in 1995, with remarkable success. Before the advent of the Internet, law firms typically spent tens of thousands of dollars to have their information included in published directories, in order to advertise their businesses.

HG.org, realizing the power and the reach of the Internet, developed the first self-listing directories online, where attorneys can provide comprehensive information about their individual law firm and their services directly to the legal community and the public, for a nominal cost, accessible at the click of a button.

Today HG.org Legal Directory is the only global directory covering virtually every country and population center by more than 250 practice areas.

HG.org provides these listing services worldwide:


In order to make the search information as accessible as possible, HG.org allows potential customers to search by geographic area, by country and practice area, by state and city, as well as by practice area.

Today, when someone is searching for an attorney or a law firm online, the search results from all the major search engines show the HG.org Law Firm Directory at or near the top of the page for most states and countries. This creates a remarkable presence in the market for each listed firm.
