Our ethos – a strategic approach

The firm was set up to offer an alternative to traditional law firms by focussing on providing a real strategic perspective to our advice. We are able to do this because:

  • All our lawyers are specialists and a number are nationally recognised experts.
  • All our lawyers are very experienced – we don’t learn on the job.

The firm is ranked in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners directories.
