Attorney Roxann Gallagher, a commercial and public finance and Indian law partner at Sacks Tierney P.A., was recently elected to the board of directors of Meritas.

According to a press release, Ms. Gallagher was elected from the more than 7,000 attorneys in the Meritas member network and will serve a three-year term on the 21-member board.

The global alliance of 183 independent law firms in 92 countries, serves the legal needs of companies doing business across international markets, according to the release.

“Roxann has been a strong leader as the Meritas network has grown to serve an increasing number of companies’ cross-border legal needs,” said Tanna Moore, Meritas president and CEO, in a prepared statement.

“It’s a critical time for our leaders, when global business, political, environmental and technical dynamics are constantly changing. Roxann has a keen understanding of what keeps in-house counsel up at night, given the pressures of managing these complexities in the most efficient, effective way possible.”

As a board member, Ms. Gallagher will participate in strategic planning, development, member recruitment and retention, and the administration of Meritas’ rigorous quality standards, the release said.

Ms. Gallagher’s Meritas involvement has included current membership on the Finance Committee and Member Engagement Committee and serving as Sacks Tierney’s Young Lawyer Program representative.
