What We Believe

It should be no surprise that serving clients is at the core of our mission. But we also hope we're creating a place where talented people want to work. The way we articulate our mission and values reflects these dual ambitions and is the bedrock of our firm. As Ian Davis, our Managing Director, notes, "Our values aren't quasi-religious virtues but rather a set of interlocking and mutually reinforcing choices."
