We try to build each client relationship on four pillars:
We listen. We know that it is essential to fully understand the client's
situation and the client's goals.
We respond quickly and keep the client fully informed. Our primary purpose
is to create "win-win" solutions to problems rather than resort to the
all too familiar refrain of "it just can't be done". Above all, we view
ourselves as counsellors-at-law with a duty to keep focused on what is truly
important in any given matter and to render advice according to our best
With the expertise of our attorneys, we are able handle a wide range of
business matters and disputes, from basic to complex. We work leanly and efficiently.
Our moderate billing rates reflect our modest overhead and staff costs.
We seek to earn the client's confidence and trust. We place great
importance in our professional integrity, ethics and reputation. We will
always be candid with our advice to a client even if it isn't what the
client wants to hear. That is part of doing our job.
"...what most clients, including corporate clients, want from their lawyers
is not just a string of discrete judgments about various aspects of their problem,
but deliberative advice as to what they should do, all things considered."
