Mission and values
Our firm has acquired an enviable reputation with the courts of all instances, with other law firms, and in the business community for the rectitude, thoroughness and excellence of its lawyers. Beyond handling files, cases and instances, we first and foremost build relationships based on trust.
In our litigation files, these relationships based on trust are the guarantee of a better exchange and understanding of all the stakes and challenges that our clients face, a better cooperation with opposing counsels in the management of the adversarial process, a more attentive and receptive disposition of the decision-makers, and more fruitful negotiations generating better results for our clients.
In our business files, these relationships based on trust allow us to better understand all aspects of our clients’ operations, to accompany our clients from the inception of their businesses and all the way through the blooming period, and to negotiate commercial transactions that take into account all of our clients’ needs.
Our clients put their trust in us because they receive the support of conscientious attorneys, negotiators, and drafters that inspire the respect of their opponents, their business partners, and the courts.
The Courts and our colleagues of other firms know us for our rectitude, our work ethic and the value of our word.
Our work is based on communication and perspective. We give our client the time of day and we protect their utmost interest. Legal issues often arise in the context of our clients’ broader business or personal issues which are equally important, sometimes even more. With good communication, we keep a global vision of all the impacts the decisions we take and strategies we adopt can have.
We listen closely and we have frank and direct discussions. We explore all avenues and analyze the situations on all possible angles. Our advice and our strategies are practical and centered on the best outcome for our clients.
