Miller Johnson earns Recertification as Global Meritas Member

Miller Johnson has earned recertification as a member of Meritas, a global alliance of business law firms in more than 75 countries worldwide.  Recertification is a diligent review process that includes peer review and adherence to client standards, client service and professional conduct and is required every three years.

The mid-sized firms affiliated with Meritas offer greater flexibility—customized billing, deep expertise, and local rates—while minimizing the chance of conflicts. Their working knowledge of local cultural and jurisdictional issues typically exceeds that of most international law firms and facilitates positive and timely outcomes. Membership is selective and the extensive due diligence process saves clients time in validating law firm credentials and experience.

“Meritas’ extensive due diligence process and stringent membership requirements ensure that we can quickly tap into pre-screened, reliable legal experience across the world” said Robert D. Brower, Miller Johnson attorney and Meritas liaison.  “Our clients are the beneficiaries of this unusual resource.”

In recent years, Miller Johnson has partnered with Meritas members on matters ranging from contract disputes to real estate, from entity formations to employment and labor issues as well as private client matters ranging from tax to trusts.  While we work with many firms in large metropolitan areas in North America, Miller Johnson regularly partners with clients and firms throughout Europe and Asia.

Meritas is a global alliance of pre-qualified, independent, full-service law firms formed with the sole purpose of facilitating connections to trusted legal counsel in the global marketplace.  The alliance of more than 180 firms includes over 7,500 attorneys.  Only firms performing under the tenets of Meritas’ uniquely comprehensive Quality Assurance Program are allowed to maintain membership, ensuring that clients receive the same high quality legal work and service from every Meritas firm across the globe.  For more information about Meritas or to find a firm, visit www.meritas.org.
