We’re “commercial” – sound a bit trite? Isn’t it the hackneyed claim of all law firms? Thing is, we come from both camps. We’ve done our time at top-tier law firms, then switched to blue-chip in-house roles – working closely with the business, always giving our expert advice in the broader commercial context.
We’ve also been company secretaries and secretaries on risk, audit and strategy committees (including the IT subcommittee of NAB’s Principal Board and the risk and audit committee for NAB’s IT and operations division). We’re not just about the “legals” – we’ve been deeply involved in risk analysis, mitigation and weighting, and bring this experience to every project.
So we’ve earned our stripes – and are well-placed to make that claim. We understand when to pick our battles and the grounds to fight them on – we know what really matters.
Our clients tell us they really appreciate our help with commercial and strategic issues, as well as legal ones – to get to the “problem behind the problem” – and then to solve it.
We don't just advise on legal risk. We focus on outcomes and solutions. We get the deal done.
