COMPANY VALUES, POLICIES AND PRACTICES
Our team is fully committed and motivated to focus on serving our clients’ needs expeditiously, with professionalism and accuracy.
We firmly maintain that the way we manage and treat our personnel has a direct impact on the manner in which they treat our clients.
It is vital for our staff to experience our important milestones with us and to grow mentally with our success. As proof of our beliefs, two of our staff members served us for over 20 years and we have several members who have remained on our staff for more than 15 years.
We place a strong focus on the empowerment, training and skills development of our fellow employees. To enhance their career and professional growth, our support staff are regularly encouraged to attend courses and presentations offered by various experts in the litigation and conveyancing field, to ensure that they are continuously “in tune” with new developments that affect our business practice.
We place a strong emphasis on teamwork and having a spirit of togetherness, as effective communication between team members enhances the overall performance of our organisation which, in turn, leads to ultimate client satisfaction.
Our mission is to provide the highest level of efficient, speedy and specialised professional services to our clients. Our solution-based approach, while striving towards service excellence and professionalism, allows us to pride ourselves in client satisfaction. We place a strong value on our long-term client relationships and associations.
Our vision is not to become the largest law firm in Pretoria or South Africa, but to build and maintain a reputation for being able to render a wide range of exceptional levels of legal service delivery to our current and prospective client base.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential …these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence – (Eddie Robinson)
