We follow 13 step Business Principles

  • Our client’s interests always come first. We are client-driven, consistently delivering the best products and services in a cost-effective way. We are convinced that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow.

  • Our assets are our people, capital and reputation. If any of these is ever diminished, the last is the most difficult to restore. We are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us. Our continued success depends upon unswerving adherence to this standard.

  • We take great pride in the professional quality of our work. We have an uncompromising determination to achieve excellence in everything we undertake. Though we may be involved in a wide variety and heavy volume of activity, we would, if it came to a choice, rather be best than biggest.

  • We stress creativity and imagination in everything we do. While recognizing that the old way may still be the best way, we constantly strive to innovate, test and learn to find a better solution to a client's problems.

  • We make an unusual effort to identify and recruit the very best person for every job. In a service business, we know that without the best people, we cannot be the best firm.

  • We offer our people the opportunity to move ahead more rapidly than is possible at most other firms. Advancement depends on merit, and we have yet to find the limits to the responsibility our best people are able to assume. That means that for us to be successful, we must attract, retain and motivate men and women from many backgrounds and perspectives. Being diverse is not optional; it is what we must be.

  • We stress teamwork in everything we do. While individual creativity is always encouraged, we have found that team effort often produces the best results. We have no room for those who put their personal interests ahead of the interests of the firm and its clients.

  • The dedication of our people to the firm and the intense effort they give their jobs are greater than one finds in most other organizations. We are convinced that in order for this to happen, we must develop a holistic work environment where the innate talents and worth of every individual are not only respected, but also actively supported and encouraged. We think that this is an important part of our success.

  • We want to be big enough to undertake the largest project that any of our clients could contemplate, yet small enough to maintain the loyalty, intimacy and the esprit de corps that we all treasure and that contribute greatly to our success.

  • We constantly strive to anticipate the rapidly changing needs of our clients and to develop new services to meet those needs. We know that the world of legal services will not stand still and that complacency can lead to extinction.

  • We regularly receive confidential information as part of our normal client relationships. To breach a confidence or to use confidential information improperly or carelessly would be unthinkable.

  • Our business is highly competitive, and we aggressively seek to expand our client relationships. However, we must always be fair competitors and must never denigrate other firms.

  • Integrity and honesty are at the heart of our business. We expect our people to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do, both in their work for the firm and in their personal lives. We are convinced that the best marketing, and ultimately the only kind that truly works, is a job well done. We think that jobs are done best by well-rounded individuals of integrity, and in a friendly and supportive environment.
