A fresh approach to legal services delivery reflecting the needs of modern business

  • Low cost base

    We maintain a relatively low cost base so that we can offer partner level experienced lawyers at highly competitive rates.

  • Compensation Structure

    We have implemented a compensation structure that ties how our lawyers get paid to the commercial outcome of each matter, aligning their success to that of our clients.

  • Fees

    We have greater flexibility to provide charging arrangements which suit each client and avoid any surprises in our invoices. We do this either by agreeing our fees up front or by regular fee updates in a manner we have found difficult to achieve in larger firms.

  • Legal Technology

    We make better use of technology to create efficiencies in the delivery of our services.
