“As a lawyer, you must have an interest in people and society in general. A natural curiosity is also part of this. We are a firm with a rich history. Even today we still adhere to the same principles and values that we had when we were founded, such as loyalty. We value long- term relationships with our clients whom we assist whenever they need us.”
