We are the Houston affiliate of Meritas, through which we can provide clients with immediate national and global legal services.
Meritas Law Firms Worldwide is an international association of more than 200 independent business and commercial law firms in more than 70 countries. Every major city in the United States is home to a Meritas affiliate, and all of the traditional business centers as well as many emerging markets worldwide have affiliate firms. Each member firm includes English-speaking attorneys who have long-standing relationships in their communities and are well-versed in local business, legal and social customs.
Each Meritas firm goes through a rigorous selection process and is thereafter subject to periodic review to insure continued compliance with selection criteria. The organization maintains a continuous process of referral satisfaction, with reports due every 90 days from affiliate firms. Each referral is assessed for client satisfaction. Firms that fail to meet selection criteria on a continuous basis or fall short of Meritas standards on referral satisfaction assessments are subject to losing their affiliation.
Designated contacts with member firms are available to us by both e-mail and traditional communications media. Each affiliate member is responsible to return contacts in not more than 24 hours, and our own experience has been that contacts are almost always responded to on a same-day basis.
