Pitblado Law was proud to be the host Firm of the Meritas Canadian Regional Meeting, which was held in Winnipeg on September 19th and 20th.


Established in 1990, Meritas is a global alliance of independent, full-service law firms with more than 7,600 lawyers in over 90 countries worldwide.


Meritas membership is selective and by invitation only. As a member firm, Pitblado 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.


In Canada, Meritas has representation in all 10 provinces and territories, and has over 500 lawyers in 11 firms. All 11 firms attended the meeting in Winnipeg.


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


Members enjoyed sessions ranging from the business of law to business development tactics, and gained insight from the local expertise of a General Counsel panel. The last evening was spent at the remarkable and meaningful Canadian Museum for Human Rights, with members taking part in a private tour and networking reception.
