Jack Buchanan, Founder and President
An Inspiring Thought for the Week
"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country . My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you."
We hope you find our new interactive weekly eMagazine helpful during these difficult Covid-19 days. We plan to publish a new edition every Monday morning with an inspiring message of hope to start your week. The eMagazine is unique in that it will be interactive. Unlike most magazines which are one-way streets, this one is a two-way where readers are given the opportunity to contribute content and articles.

The Primerus Promise
What does it mean when 170 law firms from across the globe promise that they will adhere to the highest standards of the profession as set forth in the Primerus Code of Excellence called the “Six Pillars”?
Blindsided

The Primerus Optimistic Index
This is the beginning of an interactive graph that will help us try to accurately predict the progress the world is making in getting control over the Coronavirus and bringing the economies of the world back to relatively normal operations. Factoring in the feedback from the membership, Primerus is at a 7 on the Optimistic Index this week. Where are you? Please take the survey below.

Three Frogs
B y: Nick Kacher

There are three frogs sitting on a lily pad when one of the frogs decides to jump off. How many frogs are now on the lily pad?  
What will "Normal" be after Coronavirus?
B y: Sheila Buchanan

The objective for all countries is getting back to “normal”. Our economies are shaky, our businesses are in peril, enormous numbers of people are unemployed, and many are pleading to reopen their businesses.
Good People Doing Good Things
B y: Chad Sluss

Primerus members amaze me every day. Below are a few examples of how our members live by the mantra “Good People Who Happen to Be Good Lawyers.”   
The Value of a Handwritten Note

Monday Morning Coffee with
Jack Buchanan

Join us next Monday for coffee and conversation. We will be discussing some interesting new things we are doing at Primerus these days including our new website design and our new “Virtual Law Firm” concept. In order to keep the conversation manageable, we must limit it to 25 attendees so that everyone can participate. We will do this on a first come basis. If you cannot do it this week, then please put your name in for a future Monday of “Coffee and Conversation.”  On Monday, May 11th, we will be holding a coffee at 10:00 am CST (Shanghai Time) to accommodate our members from the Asia Pacific Region.

Member Virtual Meet Up

During these unprecedented times we need to do things a little differently. With so many in-person events cancelled this year, Primerus would like to provide an opportunity for the membership to connect virtually. During the video conference call, we hope you will share information about your firm, how you and your firm are adjusting to the current global pandemic, and how we can all provide assistance to each other. We would like to see as many Primerus faces as we can, and hope that you can join us!
