Miller Johnson expands Affiliation with Meritas

Detroit Office Enhances Coverage for Michigan’s Law Firm 

Miller Johnson has expanded its affiliation with Meritas, a global alliance of independent business law firms, to become the sole firm representing the entire state of Michigan within Meritas. Miller Johnson’s Detroit office was welcomed into the alliance last week at Meritas’ Annual Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, joining the firm’s preexisting coverage in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo, which has been part of the network for over 20 years. The affiliation offers access to more than 8,400 lawyers in 90 countries and 245 markets worldwide. Clients can now obtain legal counsel across jurisdictions and borders, with the convenience of working with Miller Johnson as its local contact.

“We are thrilled to add Detroit, and with it all of Michigan, to the area of service we provide our Meritas affiliates,” said Matthew L. Vicari, Member Contact for Miller Johnson. “Our relationship with Meritas has proven beneficial for our clients looking for representation outside of our own coverage maps and for clients needing legal representation in Michigan when their local firm can’t provide it. This latest expansion only reinforces our commitment to being Michigan’s law firm while serving clients from anywhere in the world.”

“Companies in our local markets are increasingly doing business across the country and over borders; seamless legal representation on a global scale is vital,” said Vicari. “Through Meritas, we can offer our clients in-depth knowledge of cultural and jurisdictional issues in all major markets around the world. Meritas offers us peace of mind that our clients’ legal needs will be met with the same commitment to quality, professionalism, and value on which we pride ourselves.”

How Meritas Works

Miller Johnson serves Meritas firms’ clients by receiving inbound national and international referrals from affiliates in the Meritas network. The client is afforded a complimentary consultation and evaluation of their needs before the local representation commences. Likewise, Miller Johnson clients are able to discuss and present their matters to any firm in the Meritas network after Miller Johnson makes the introduction on their behalf. This referral service is valuable for Michigan-based clients with operations and interests worldwide, as well as out-of-state and foreign businesses with matters in Michigan.
