Swaab Earns Recer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Mer­i­tas, the Pre­mier Glob­al Net­work of Inde­pen­dent Law Firms. Swaab’s mem­ber­ship in Mer­i­tas means its clients can access, qual­i­ty legal exper­tise around the world

Syd­ney, NSW (11 July 2024) – Swaab, a Syd­ney-based law firm, today announced that it has been award­ed recer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Mer­i­tas, the pre­mier glob­al alliance of inde­pen­dent busi­ness law firms. Swaab joined Mer­i­tas in 2009 and, as a con­di­tion of its mem­ber­ship, is required to suc­cess­ful­ly com­plete recer­ti­fi­ca­tion every three years based on a rig­or­ous review of its com­mit­ment to qual­i­ty stan­dards and excep­tion­al client service. 

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 by pre­qual­i­fy­ing 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 lev­els 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 retain mem­ber­ship. The mea­sure­ment of the firm’s per­for­mance, based on input from clients and peers, is reflect­ed in a sat­is­fac­tion index score, which is avail­able online at Mer​i​tas​.org.

Swaab’s com­mit­ment to qual­i­ty and val­ue for mon­ey aligns with the Mer­i­tas mis­sion to give clients peace of mind when work­ing with their high­ly vet­ted mem­ber firms,” said Mary Digiglio, Man­ag­ing Part­ner, Swaab We’ve suc­cess­ful­ly col­lab­o­rat­ed with col­leagues around the world to solve our clients’ issues and help them enter and expand into new mar­kets and indus­tries.
