The International Society of Primerus Law Firms

PKF Lawyers is privileged to have been accepted into membership with the International Society of Primerus Law Firms in 2017. As PKF’s clients’ business and legal interests are international in scope, Primerus membership provides PKF with the ability to add significant value to its clients by expanding our reach to a global network. Primerus membership also ensures that our lawyers keep abreast of legal developments within the Canadian and international legal community and maintains excellence in practice. Membership connects us with other high-quality law firms globally, which is increasingly important for law firms such as ours, in this day of international connectivity and commerce.
Tom Frohlinger, Managing Director – PKF Lawyers

Primerus is a society of top-rated, independent, small to medium size law firms that have earned the right to display the Primerus seal of quality. As one of the most respected law firm societies, Primerus has become the size of some of the world’s largest law firms. Primerus is growing at an unprecedented pace, and is expanding throughout the U.S., Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean. With thousands of lawyers in the society, Primerus members, collectively, offer the breadth of expertise and jurisdictional coverage that only the world’s largest law firms can offer to their clients, but at more reasonable rates. Law firms in the U.S. and Canada must be AV-rated using the Martindale-Hubbell peer review service.

For firms outside of North America, consideration is given to respected resources, such as, Chambers Global Guide, Legal 500 EMEA, and IFLR 1000. Additionally, once approved for membership, every Primerus firm is audited, annually, to ensure that the legal services they continue to provide to clients are of a consistent high quality, year after year. Each member is committed to the following standards: Integrity, Excellent Work Product, Reasonable Fees, Continuing Legal Education, Civility and Community Service.
