Professional ethics, integrity and competence is the paramount basis of all aspects of our practice. Every legal issue and mandate is approached from the stand-point of the business objectives of the clients. Every single fee account will represent good value for effective services. We will not commence a mandate prior to understanding the precise objectives of our client. We will provide timely reports, control disbursements and use technology to reduce costs. Alternative billing (not purely time-based) is encouraged in particular circumstances, and is negotiated at the outset.
