As stated in our value statement, we apply the highest professional standards in everything we do. We honour and obey the laws, professional standards and regulations that apply to us. We keep abreast of societal developments and shifting public opinion that may impact our work.

We have implemented a Matter Assessment Committee (MAC) to function as an advisory body and sounding board on whether we should accept certain instructions and projects or advise on certain matters. Under this MAC process - which is part of our client- and matter acceptance process - all partners and associates are required to consult the MAC if a matter represents a higher-than-usual risk.
