In each firm, organizational structure is fundamentally different from what you would find in local markets - each firm is a premium player in a respective jurisdiction, rather than a ‘commodity’ provider.
Each firm has an organizational structure unique in its jurisdiction, which is one of the reasons why highly sophisticated clients choose member firms for the most challenging legal assignments. What sets us apart from the competition is that the legal teams are composed in large part of highly experienced senior lawyers. In addition, although we have specialized departments, expert practice groups and regional desks, one specific partner always serves as the main point of contact for a client. This rule is applicable regardless of the type of work, geographical spread or mandate complexity.
“Innovation through emphasis on healthy communication and bespoke service.”
We are not conventional lawyers - we consider both legal and non-legal aspects of our clients’ business.
We do not ignore financial, strategic, operational, organizational, and other non-legal aspects of our clients’ businesses. Many of our lawyers hold business degrees alongside their law degrees, having learned the “tricks of the trade” from domestic, as well as prestigious international universities. Some of our lawyers have held managing positions with prominent international companies, while others have worked as partners at leading international and domestic law firms. Individual members of our teams have held executive positions in the public sector, as advisors and decision-makers. Finally, we utilize the assistance of respected scholars, university professors and former Supreme Court judges who are engaged on an ad hoc basis when necessary. This “eclectic” team composition makes us truly different in the market, and enables a thorough understanding of our client’s business, ultimately allowing us to provide valuable, practical assistance.
“Added values derives from multifactorial analysis – something that other firms find intimidating; no aspect, regardless of how seemingly negligible, is overlooked”
Blackberry Rule: We do not speak or write too much – we give clear advice that you can actually use.
Our principle is to provide concrete, concise, yet comprehensive legal advice and solutions that our clients can use and implement in their business. We apply the “Blackberry” rule whenever we can. The client receives a “yes” or “no” answer, and if the legal situation is unclear, the client can always rely on our advice when making important commercial decisions.
“Substantive simplicity = clarity of understanding.”
Time is money – maximum efficiency is a requisite.
Time is precious. In business, time is money. We fully understand this. Our business approach is that the client should never have to wait for the answer. Our organizational structure of senior lawyers with considerable experience and knowledge allows us to prioritize adequately, avoiding unnecessary and time-consuming research, essentially leading to efficient results in the form of quality answers.
“Instant gratification is an asset in the business world.”
We measure the ‘value for money’ ratio, keeping it as high as possible.
We quantify cost-effectiveness as the extent to which our service has achieved its results at a lower cost compared with alternatives. We share the same philosophy with our clients, in that shortcomings in cost-effectiveness occur when the service provided is not the lowest-cost alternative or approach to achieving the same or similar outputs and outcomes. Our organizational structure allows us to be extremely cost-effective – providing premium legal service without running into unnecessary overheads.
