Bivins & Hemenway, P.A., is a member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms (Primerus). The firm has been a member since 2007.
Primerus is a society of top-rated, independent, small to medium sizelaw 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.
“Primerus membership allows us to provide our clients with a global legal support platform while maintaining the personal touch of a small firm. We are honored to be affiliated with high caliber firms across the country and around the world.” – Bob Bivins, Managing Shareholder
