Better Serving Our Clients Through Primerus
Posted Apr 30, 2019

We Are a Primerus Firm
For many years Beresford Booth has held a membership in Primerus, an international society of independent law firms. Such an honor does not come easily, nor is it something our firm takes lightly: earning a Primerus membership requires a consistent commitment to excellence.
As a Primerus firm, we hold connections to hundreds of other Primerus firms across the country and around the globe. Locally, Beresford Booth consists of 15 lawyers with wide-ranging legal expertise and extensive experience in Washington jurisdictions. However, our diverse client base often challenges us with complex legal questions necessitating expertise outside of our state, and even outside our country. In those circumstances, our Primerus membership gives us access to hundreds of proven, independent firms around the world to assist us with the complex legal needs of our clients.
Earning a Primerus Membership
Every Primerus firm, including Beresford Booth, endures the rigorous vetting process mandatory for acceptance by Primerus. The vetting process requires each firm, and each lawyer within that firm, to demonstrate a willingness to commit to a set of common values known as the Six Pillars:
- Excellent product
- Reasonable fees
- Continuing legal education
- Community service
Only after a firm is properly vetted, and each lawyer within that firm validates the commitment to follow the Six Pillars, can the firm earn a Primerus membership. Once admitted to the Primerus society, each Primerus lawyer takes the Six Pillars seriously. The Six Pillars serve to guide how we conduct our practice as a firm and as individual lawyers.
Value Added as a Primerus Firm
Beresford Booth earned access to the Primerus society by using the Six Pillars to guide our practice which has added value to the counsel we provide our clients. Through Primerus, Beresford Booth has access to extensive resources beyond our local footprint and enhances our expertise in numerous legal fields. This breadth of resources, depth of expertise and quality of character bolstered through our Primerus membership allows us to solve the numerous complex legal problems our clients face. While we value our deep local roots, Beresford Booth is pleased to offer our clients resources of a much larger firm, without the expense. No matter how complex our clients’ legal problems or where their problems take them, we have the resources required to serve all our clients wherever they go.
