Take a look at our six values which are closely aligned to our strategy and our promises to clients.
1. commitment to public services
As individuals, teams and as a firm, we are committed to supporting public services whether these are provided by the public, private or third sectors.
2. people centric
In our firm, people succeed according to their merits. We believe in a people centric approach to business, and equality and fairness in the way we treat our employees, members, clients, suppliers and communities. We respect people for who they are, their skills and knowledge, their behaviours and the contribution they make as individuals, team members to the firm, to our clients and to our communities, and value this diversity.
3. passion for excellence
We aspire to excellence in everything that we do within our firm and for our clients. We seek to combine technical legal excellence with commerciality of advice and excellent client service in the context of the client’s business. We demand a lot from our high quality people – who we expect to be bright, capable and self-motivated, as well as passionate about what they do, how they do it, and who they do it for.
4. collegiality and teamwork
We aim to bring out the best in each other and create strong and successful working relationships within the firm and with our clients. Working as an integrated firm, across teams, departments and markets, will enable us to deliver excellent client service and advice that is greater than the sum of the parts. We seek to maintain a supportive ethos, where we are interested and engaged in what each other are doing, and to have an open and approachable working environment.
Behaving with the highest levels of integrity is fundamental to who we are. We adhere to high professional standards and we are our clients’ trusted adviser.
6. creating value
Creating value for and from our clients and for and from our people is key to sustainable success for our firm. Our focus is on building client life time value and attracting and retaining high quality people by finding, winning, keeping and growing interesting, challenging and profitable work. We aim to ensure that our chosen clients are at the heart of everything we do.
