Our Philosophy

Lean experience

In a world where large law firms serve large corporations in connection with ever more complex deals, it is easy for the business owner to feel undervalued. However, because corporate and commercial law is becoming increasingly complex, businesses cannot afford not to take specialist advice. We support those businesses that want to deal with a lawyer experienced in commercial legal advice but without the overheads associated with larger law firms.


Price certainty

Although we may not be the cheapest provider of corporate and commercial legal services, we believe that our pricing is very competitive. For the majority of our work, we offer fixed fee rates. This means that clients have certainty about the price for their legal work.

Long term relationships

We have an excellent network so even if we feel your issue is something that doesn’t fall within our core competencies, we will be able to recommend another adviser. We are committed to long term client relationships and we value the integrity of those relationships over making a short term business win where we can’t deliver value to our client.

Efficient partnering

We leverage technology to better deliver value added services. It’s what allows us to be competitive on pricing. We believe in paperless transactions and the cloud. We ask all our clients be part of that process.

Personal edge

In an age of automated services and faceless teams of advisors, we can still provide a client-facing personal service. You’ll always know who you are dealing with and that the individual is fully invested in and responsible for your transaction.
