It is also important to us that every client should receive excellent value for the fees we may charge, and that agreements with clients on both fees and expenses for any assignment be fully respected.

The vision is of a coherent unit of exceptional specialists advising ambitious business clients in every sector on their most challenging work to the highest standards and with versatility.

Our strategy is to grow only as quickly as by organic growth we can generate exceptionally-able lawyers who have the experience and temperament to be general partners to serve our clients and lead our growth.

We are also very much an independent business law practice led by a partnership into which associates who have served an “apprenticeship” with the practice may be admitted.

The bases for admission to the partnership are lawyerly ability and seniority rather than cash purchases of partnership shares or ‘rain- making’ prowess.

We are an orthodox professional partnership, slow to engage in lateral-hiring and committed to a “lockstep” system of recognizing our partners. Each of our partners is, and has always been, both a general partner and an equity partner.

From inception, we have been committed to searching for and hiring talented and motivated young lawyers and training them to become proficient, versatile and business-minded practitioners.

We always insist on ability, commitment and decency. Beyond these, we seek and encourage diversity in background and gender among our lawyers on the view that such diversity can only enrich our insights, outlook, experience and capacity for empathy with clients.
