Philosophy

“We are considered pragmatic, driven to early positive results through skilled and fearless negotiation or use of the judicial system.”

The business affairs and issues entrusted to us are sacred and closely monitored. We review the specific objectives of each client in every mandate on a monthly basis to ensure that the objectives of the client are attained in a timely, cost-effective fashion. We look for effective solutions, knowing this will encourage clients to re-use our services. We are considered pragmatic, driven to early positive results through skilled and fearless negotiation or use of the judicial system. We anticipate legal developments and impart new and innovative strategies to our clients, who more than ever in this competitive world seek value for their money. Timely and effective service and reasonable billing is our motto. In partnering with our clients, our sole aim is to add value to the business of our clients. Success is best achieved through pro-active and experienced advice through the application of skilled and ethical standards to every aspect of a mandate. Partnering and developing strong relationships with our clients dramatically enhances our added value. We insist upon regular feedback from our clients in respect of our performance and billings.

We try to meet with in-house counsel three times per year to improve service and streamline budgets and procedures. We are fully aware that in-house counsel’s role has changed dramatically in recent years. They are both legal advisor and part of a business team responsible for management, strategy and growth. We must become more adaptable since their adaptability and reliance on our services is a condition for their success. We are fully cognizant of the need to balance regulatory requirements and governance against the objective to operate a profitable business, which includes the proper management of a range of outside law firms. We value providing both legal and business advice when called upon to do so by our in-house colleagues, since that is the essence of partnering and achieving our common objectives.

Our sole focus is client success. Passion, confidence and efficiency are hallmarks helping us achieve your goals. We are entrepreneurial and creative; our fee structure reflects serious consideration to results, since partnering is not a one-way street.
