Core Values

We practice law around five core values that are interdependent and of equal importance. These values also govern our firm management, recruitment, and training.


Communication by its nature is multi-dimensional and must be timely, professional, thorough, and transparent in order to be effective. Effective communication promptly informs the client and seeks her advice as a matter is handled. Within our ranks, open communication and listening foster team work and shared information so that the best-informed decisions can be made.


Excellence in legal representation requires thoughtfully understanding the scope of retention, thoroughly investigating the facts and researching the law, and skillfully handling meetings, depositions, hearings, and trials. Excellence pays attention to detail, never leaves anything to chance, and takes nothing for granted.


Acting with integrity is the measure of a lawyer’s character and the highest aspiration of the firm.  It informs every aspect of our interaction as faithful stewards of the law with clients and each other.  It is reflected in diligent work, honest reporting, genuine relationships, and the trustworthiness of our advice and advocacy.


The firm’s time and advice have value when scholarship is embedded in our legal services. That means asking the hard questions, digging beneath the surface, and finding the right answers. Scholarship identifies the resources that will make a difference and captures them on behalf of the client. The written product with scholarship reflects not only knowledge but understanding and experience in order to persuade.  Scholarship provides the competitive edge.

Strategic Advice

Strategic advice drives the resolution goals of each case with finesse, wisdom, and humility. Drawing together the interests of the client and the constellation of relationships between the insured, brokers, and insurers in an international market requires both a legal and business perspective. Strategic advice is the differentiator that sets the firm apart from others.

Our Team

The firm is comprised of accomplished counselors, litigators, and trial lawyers. We are a unique blend of talent and experience committed to protecting our clients’ interests.  

Our Practice

Our collaborative style of practice is based on a firm culture of mutual respect, integrity, open doors, and a willingness to listen and understand.  In a word, leadership.
