About this office:

The Firm was founded in 2008 by the coming together of the Partners to create a viable alternative to large law firms. Our ethos is based on the principal of a real partnership which ensures clients always have a direct interface with at least one partner having specialized knowledge and practical experience in the branch of law under consideration. We consider our services not only to be advice on a single case or legal representation of a client, but as a foundation towards a long-term and comprehensive professional relationship.
