Our approach

Before establishing our firm, our founding partners were partners in large commercial law firms. We think like a big firm, but act like a small firm. 

We have thought deeply about how we do what we do. We have developed a distinctive approach, which leads to successful outcomes.

We gather all relevant information quickly, and at the start of a matter. We think clearly about the issues, and devise a strategy to achieve results. We focus on the outcome, not just on the process.

We make things happen.

The best outcomes are achieved through collaboration, teamwork and pro-active effort. A partner is responsible for the conduct of every matter, with hands-on involvement. A partner is the primary point of contact for every client on all of our matters. For most matters, two partners are involved. As a result, our clients have a senior point of contact in the firm at all times, even if one of us is in Court or on leave. We believe in the adage that two heads are better than one.

We conduct regular internal reviews of complex matters so that our clients derive the maximum benefit from collective knowledge. That process leads to good ideas and better outcomes. 

We recognise that legal costs can often be a concern. We strive to provide value for money. We believe that our approach achieves that outcome. Repeat work from long-standing clients, who continue to recommend us to others, bears this out.

In addition, we speak and meet regularly with our clients throughout Australia to ensure we stay on top of what is most important to them. Our goal is to be easy to work with, to be responsive to out clients' needs, and to provide pre-eminent services at a cost which our clients believe represents good value.

Our relationship with each of our clients is of fundamental importance to us. We measure our success through our clients' satisfaction with our services. 

Our goal is to make the complex simple, and to make the simple powerful.
