Our values and culture

Our values and culture

Our values and culture are not just sets of words, they set us apart - defining who we are and how we do business.


We invest in long-term relationships that support and nurture our clients.  We are generous with our time; we listen to our clients and use our networks to grow their business.

We encourage and respect our people.  We provide early opportunities for them to advance and support their development through mentoring rather than lecturing.

Commercial focus

With deep industry knowledge and foresight, combined with technical excellence, our people look beyond the legal criteria to provide the best commercial outcomes for clients.

We draw strength from diversity of our legal services; clients and their industries; and our own people and experiences.  


We are committed to the success of our clients. We don’t just look for the next deal, preferring to work with clients as they build their businesses from the ground up.

We don’t shy away from hard work; we have a ‘whatever it takes’ attitude and are quick to respond to the needs of clients.

Down to earth

We are a big firm without the big-firm attitude.  We are unpretentious and friendly, and will happily work with our clients at their offices and operations.

We’re approachable and take our work seriously but not ourselves.
