Winning teams are made of passion for reaching a common goal. We are passionate about what we do and passionate about letting it show.
For us, passion is ambition for excellence defined. It goes hand in hand with extraordinary client experiences. Insight and innovation, delivered with passion.
Respect is our key to attuning to our clients and colleagues – and to better collaboration. When we give feedback or challenge a colleague’s view, we do it in the same boat, striving to reach the best possible end-result as a team. We have a shared commitment to help each other grow.
We expect respect in every interaction, both internally and externally. It’s all about being present, showing appreciation through listening and being kind even when things don’t go as planned.
Respect, we believe, is the key to attune to our clients and their wants and needs. It’s not only our insight but also our clients’ insight that matters.
Team Before Individual
Teamwork is only common sense. For us the real thing is this: there’s no “I” in team. We work collaboratively together.
It’s very simple, really. We value teamplaying efforts, such as generous sharing of knowledge, more than individual scores. However, much like the most beautiful star constellations in the Northern sky, legendary winning teams are rarely made without star individuals.
We have enormous respect for our professionals as individuals with their distinctive skills and strengths. But while an individual may be hugely important for a battle, it does take a team to win a complex dispute.
Team Before Individual is embodied in our Powerhouse method. We blend talents for greater insight. Our organisational structure, processes and our compensation model foster collaboration and seek to eliminate any signs of internal competition. We compete against each other only in sports and poker.
When we put the team first, everything else falls into place.
No-one gets to the top by resting on their heels.
Being agile and attuned to what is happening in the market is an imperative in building a modern law firm. While lawyers become increasingly paired with technology, human ability for creativity and strategic insight will be of greater value than ever before.
Continuous development of our uniquely human skills requires hard work. We see our Powerhouse method as one of our signature ways to foster the development of better lawyers and life-long learning.
Sending our people regularly to leadership trainings at Harvard fosters the development of better leadership. Sending our people regularly to Paphos seminars with philosopher Esa Saarinen fosters the development of better thinking leading to better life.
Being the best place to develop, both professionally and as an individual, is our promise that we take very seriously. We believe our people, our clients and the society deserve no less.
Our common goal is to make our clients succeed and thrive in the long-term.
