We place a strong emphasis on working closely and pragmatically with our clients. Often we are dealing with projects which involve us working with in-house lawyers and project managers as part of a team. That co-operative approach, and a strong practical knowledge of the client’s needs, is a hallmark of the firm.
While taking a pragmatic approach, and one that seeks lateral solutions, we work from a carefully researched basis, based on our strong knowledge of the law, the technology, and the practical and commercial drivers.
Our Firm focuses predominantly on IT, telecommunications, regulation/competition, procurement, dispute resolution, media and marketing. We deliberately act for both vendors and purchasers. We think that acting for both helps our clients in achieving win-win outcomes, as we understand what the issues are on “both sides of the fence”. We are also trusted by both vendors and purchasers to take a pragmatic and reasonable approach (if necessary however taking a firm approach where appropriate).
A strong feature of the firm is that we get to understand well our client’s wider needs. This is reflected by the fact that most of our people have worked in in-house roles.
Our people want to work for an enlightened, up-to-date law firm where win-win solutions are important and where outcomes are greater than immediate legal needs, whether directly commercial and project-driven, or for broader outcomes such as wider community outcomes.
