Who we are is about more than what we deliver.

It is also about how we behave. Our values guide those behaviours. They come from our story and underpin our brand. They represent who we are and how we work. 

  • Courage - we have the courage to think differently.

We are inspired by our Enlightenment roots to step beyond standard solutions and to work together to create innovative ideas. We are quietly confident - not brash, and unbiased. We stand up for what is right and we are not afraid to challenge ourselves, our clients or one another.

  • Character - our character comes from our creativity, innovation and in openly sharing different views.

We understand and appreciate the value that a diverse workforce can deliver for our clients and for our firm. By openly sharing different views, experiences, insights and ideas we continually learn, we develop a depth of knowledge and thinking, and we recognise that we are better for that.

  • Care - we care about everything we do.

We care about the law and its ability to enable and protect our clients. Our firm also has many responsibilities. Those responsibilities relate to our clients and colleagues, the economy to which we contribute and the communities in which we live and work. From supporting those communities and one another at the grassroots to exchanging free time for the causes close to our hearts, we want to do what we can to shape a better future.

  • Collegiate - we are stronger together.

Everyone has the ability to create value for our clients and make a positive contribution to our firm. We care for the collective strength of our business and working together to achieve common goals.

  • Collaborative - our relationships are built on trust.

We work with our clients, not for them. We listen to them. We understand the market context by immersing ourselves in the sectors in which we operate so that we can deliver legal solutions that respond to our clients' needs.
