Your outcome lies in the execution of your strategy

Driven by Excellence. We are meticulous. We understand what is at stake and take a bold approach – with attention paid to every detail – when tackling the needs of our clients.

Intellectually Aggressive. We excel with wit, creativity and experience. We staff our clients’ legal teams leanly, with no costly pyramid structure.

Calculated Combat. Your victory is our purpose. We fight the battles worth fighting and do not get distracted by meaningless bickering. This line of attack drives our focus to what’s important, muting the background noise.

Practicing with Dexterity. Our attorneys have decades of experience, which enables us to understand the other party’s playbook, strategies and incentives, and avoid biases and a myopic focus.  The law is rarely black and white, and we excel in operating in gradations of grey by handicapping risk and driving value for our clients.

Diversity and Inclusion. Each culture and nationality perceives the world from a distinct perspective. These differences bring unique knowledge, perspectives, and points of view. When all of these diverse views are shared and combined, the extraordinary happens.
