Meritas – Law Firms Worldwide

Established in 1990, Meritas is a global alliance of independent, full-service law firms with more than 7,000 lawyers in over 78 countries worldwide.

Meritas membership is selective and by invitation only. As a member firm, Boughton Law is regularly assessed and recertified for the breadth of our practice expertise and client satisfaction. Only firms performing under the tenets of Meritas’ uniquely comprehensive Quality Assurance Program are allowed to maintain membership. For 20 years, we have been proud to meet these quality standards.

Legal Counsel beyond B.C. Borders

In Canada, Meritas has representation in all 10 provinces and territories. As membership is limited to one law firm per jurisdiction, our election as the B.C. member firm sets us apart from other law firms in this respect.

Being a part of this exclusive network is of great benefit to our clients. It enhances our international capability as we can draw on global expertise and provide referrals to clients requiring legal advice throughout the world.

Working with the Meritas network is a promising alternative to hiring an international law firm. All member firms are like Boughton Law: local, independent and mid-sized. Clients can expect greater flexibility in terms of customized billing and local rates as well as an in-depth working knowledge of local cultural and jurisdictional issues. Compared to international law firms, engaging Boughton Law and its Meritas partner firms minimizes the chance of conflict while positive and timely outcomes can be facilitated.
