We have defined excellence, trust, passion and team spirit as the basis of this professional collaboration. These are the standards against which we all measure ourselves – and want to be measured.
For us, excellence means providing a world-class service. In doing so, we combine commercially-focused advice with the highest levels of legal expertise. Precision and speed are a given in the services we provide. To achieve excellent solutions for our clients, we field those team members who are most competent to advise on the case. We efficiently implement tried and tested solutions, yet we also foster and highly value innovation, individuality and creativity. The prerequisite for our excellence is our combination of professional know-how, profound client and market knowledge, and dedication. We approach our work with the aim of achieving excellent results.
We rely on one another – everyone, every day. This includes adhering to rules and commitments. We assume full responsibility for our actions, but also for our mistakes. When we are unable to do something, we say so. We are loyal and act with integrity towards our clients, our firm and our colleagues. We rely on the fact that everyone is giving their best. Our entrepreneurial and personal freedom is important to us. In exercising this freedom, we measure ourselves against the high standards of our firm. We do not tolerate compromises in the quality of our work, but demonstrate generosity and tolerance towards one another. We do not compete with one another, but support each other in our competition with other firms.
We solve problems with dedication, pleasure and optimism. We are passionate about our work. Our commitment is infectious, convincing and inspiring. We never lose sight of the objectives of our clients, but we do not allow ourselves to lose our professional independence either. We show personal initiative and are enthusiastic and helpful. We enjoy our work and it shows. We are never short of a smile and like to tackle challenges with a healthy dose of humour. Although we are passionate about our profession, we also know that we need time for family, friends and for ourselves.
We make it possible for each individual to specialise, to distinguish themselves and develop their personal strengths. However, we recognise that we are stronger together. We depend on mutual support, respectful dealings with one another and leadership. We are genuinely interested in one another and give each other support in critical phases. We give and seek open and respectful feedback. We focus on solutions and not on problems. We learn from – and with – others, across departments, offices and countries. We like to see others succeed. That is why we are successful together.
