Announce­ment | Swaab has been award­ed recer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Mer­i­tas, a glob­al alliance of inde­pen­dent law firms

We are please to announce that Swaab has been award­ed recer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Mer­i­tas, a glob­al alliance of inde­pen­dent busi­ness law firms. As a con­di­tion of its mem­ber­ship, mem­ber firms are required to suc­cess­ful­ly com­plete recer­ti­fi­ca­tion every three years.

Mer­i­tas is the only law firm alliance with an estab­lished and com­pre­hen­sive means of mon­i­tor­ing the qual­i­ty of its mem­ber firms, a process that saves clients’ time val­i­dat­ing law firm cre­den­tials and expe­ri­ence. Mer­i­tas mem­ber­ship is selec­tive and by invi­ta­tion only. Firms are reg­u­lar­ly assessed and recer­ti­fied for the breadth of their prac­tice exper­tise, client sat­is­fac­tion and high stan­dards of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty to keep legal infor­ma­tion safe. Mer­i­tas’ exten­sive due dili­gence process ensures that only firms meet­ing the tenets of Mer­i­tas’ unique Qual­i­ty Assur­ance Program are allowed to main­tain mem­ber­ship. The mea­sure­ment of the firm’s per­for­mance, based on input from clients, is reflect­ed in a Sat­is­fac­tion Index score, which is avail­able online on the Mer­i­tas web­site.

Our val­ues of qual­i­ty ser­vice and client sat­is­fac­tion align with the Mer­i­tas mis­sion to pro­vide a safe and respon­sive glob­al offer­ing to clients,” said Mary Digiglio — Man­ag­ing Part­ner. We’ve suc­cess­ful­ly col­lab­o­rat­ed with col­leagues in many juris­dic­tions around the world to solve client issues and help them seize oppor­tu­ni­ties out­side of this mar­ket. We look for­ward to keep­ing those vital con­nec­tions through mem­ber­ship in Meritas.”

The recer­ti­fi­ca­tion process Swaab com­plet­ed to main­tain its mem­ber­ship sta­tus includ­ed exact­ing self-assess­ment, peer review by oth­er law firms and client feedback. 

Busi­ness­es trust the Mer­i­tas alliance of law firms for top-tier qual­i­ty, con­ve­nience, con­sis­ten­cy and val­ue,” said Sona Pan­choly, pres­i­dent of Mer­i­tas. Swaab has demon­strat­ed its com­mit­ment to world-class legal stan­dards, and there­fore has suc­cess­ful­ly earned its recer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Meritas.”
