Please say why your team should be considered for the award We believe we stand out from the competition because of the personal attitude to the issues our clients face. We live our clients’ businesses, worries and successes. What’s more, we realize that we are a service company, subordinate to our clients’ needs. When we do due diligence, our aim is to facilitate a deal rather than find deal breakers. When we do audit, we want to ensure that financial statements present true and fair picture of clients’ operations rather than grill accountants. We understand that tax payables are the result of profitable operations and tax savings cannot be the goal in itself. We do our best to render safe, practical and simple legal advice rather than create sophisticated yet theoretical structures understandable for academia only. Our clients’ business, safety and comfort always come first.
