Press Release: Mer­i­tas Wel­comes DMAW Lawyers, Ade­laide, to the Membership

Lead­ing Ade­laide com­mer­cial firm, DMAW Lawyers has been select­ed to be South Australia’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive firm for Mer­i­tas, the pre­mier glob­al alliance of inde­pen­dent law firms.

DMAW Lawyers will become an inte­gral part of the Aus­tralia & New Zealand net­work of firms as well as the world­wide net­work of 191 law firms locat­ed across 96 countries.

This alliance will enhance DMAW Lawyers’ abil­i­ty to sup­port South Aus­tralian busi­ness inter­ests both nation­al­ly and internationally.

DMAW’s Lawyer’s Man­ag­ing Direc­tor, Mr Leo Walsh said One of most attrac­tive ben­e­fits of belong­ing to this net­work was the oppor­tu­ni­ty for our lawyers to par­tic­i­pate in nation­al and glob­al con­ver­sa­tions on busi­ness and legal issues. Not only does this expand our think­ing, and add to our tech­ni­cal skills, but it help our lawyers build trust­ed, reli­able rela­tion­ships with lawyers in the regions that mat­ter to our clients. Already we’ve par­tic­i­pat­ed in meet­ings with Insol­ven­cy experts across the coun­try and with Senior Part­ners in Shang­hai and Tokyo.”

Mr Mike Worsnop, Part­ner with Martel­li McK­egg in New Zealand and Co-Chair of Mer­i­tas ANZ: We are delight­ed to have DMAW Lawyers join our group. Not only was their qual­i­ty appar­ent but they’ve been very easy and respon­sive to deal with dur­ing our dis­cus­sions. They clear­ly demon­strat­ed the type of ser­vice clients look for when using a firm in a dif­fer­ent market.”

DMAW Lawyers had to meet the rig­or­ous require­ments to become mem­bers of Mer­i­tas, the only law firm alliance with a Qual­i­ty Assur­ance Pro­gram that ensures clients receive the same high-qual­i­ty legal work and ser­vice from every Mer­i­tas firm.”

Mer­i­tas mem­ber­ship is extend­ed by invi­ta­tion only, and firms are reg­u­lar­ly assessed for the breadth of their prac­tice exper­tise and client satisfaction.

Ms Sona Pan­choly, Mer­i­tas CEO: In today’s envi­ron­ment hav­ing a com­mit­ment to a reli­able net­work is more impor­tant than ever. Inde­pen­dent law firms, Cor­po­rate Coun­sel, Busi­ness Own­ers and their Com­mer­cial Advi­sors, all choose their port­fo­lio of trust­ed legal rela­tion­ships to match the issues and the mar­kets they want to nav­i­gate. For 30 years, Mer­i­tas has cul­ti­vat­ed a group of the best firms for this pur­pose.”
