We Are Community Builders.
Since its inception in 1976, Merovitz Potechin LLP has made caring for the community as important to the fabric of the firm as the care it extends to its clients.
Inspired by the dedication of the firm’s founders, each lawyer at Merovitz Potechin LLP pursues and supports a number of worthy causes that are important to them personally and to the community. We invite you to learn more about these important causes, and the lawyers who support them, on each lawyer’s profile page.
