It takes a certain type of audacity to be a commercial lawyer.

That’s because every day, we go to work facing a complex legal or commercial problem that has vast implications for livelihoods: businesses, industries – even governments. Beyond that, we’re expected to come up with answers every time (we frequently do, but that’s not the point here).

Somehow, our work projects us jointly in a particular way, and the wider public tend to overlook a basic thing about law firms:

We’re ultimately just people – doing a job we are passionate about, but the nature of our work tends to blur our identity.

To be honest, there’s a gratifying side to being a lawyer in a law firm:

We tend to get very closely knit together. We get to think deeply about issues. We form perspectives. We trade perspectives on a daily basis, and develop ourselves – and each other.

So, we started this blog as a window into our Firm’s human side. We want you to get to know us, understand what we do, what we care about, how it all ties in. The little things that have a big effect on us. The little big things.

In between all the complicated transactions, our work throws up some very simple joys and development opportunities – pretty much like every office. And in sharing these with you (in plain non-lawyer speak), we hope that you get a chance to really see who we are.

Welcome.
