Key insights

Discover the Madison Marcus impact

At Madison Marcus, we’ve redefined the legal industry that goes beyond transactions with clients. Here’s a glimpse into the journey and what sets us apart:

The origin of Madison Marcus

Bechara Shamieh, the CEO & Co-Founder, was only young back then, working in mid-sized firms until he decided to take an opportunity to create change in his legal profession.

The Sustainability Commitment

As a law firm, the board of Madison Marcus believes that they can go outside the traditional law firm boxes. Motivated by the questions, “How can we elicit a new way of doing things?” and “How do we empower individuals who are working for the firm to be the best they can be?”

They aspire to be different, far from the norms, and build a high-performance culture based on trust, transparency, respect, reward, and accountability.

Being on the Journey

“I remember my father said, ‘If you want to give, give, and don’t think about it.”

Speaking from experience, Bechara Shamieh aligns with the concept of i=Change, where it all starts with change by an individual, and how it can instill and inspire others to follow. “Just getting out there and doing it”.

Madison Marcus goes beyond for their ESG, as they try to understand how to help their clients, and how to form the bond of empathy, living beyond what goes in papers but with their ethos and how they live by those.

The impact continues

By choosing Madison Marcus, you’re not just choosing a legal service; you’re embracing a business with a purpose. Join us on this journey of redefining the legal industry with empathy, and sustainability.

“In every organisation, there is an opportunity, a pathway to adopt i=Change; As that was made quite simple because we have a very agile team, a very forward thinking” – Bechara Shamieh, CEO & Co-Founder of Madison Marcus
