Legal services are required at some point of time, by everyone. However choosing the right attorney is not always easy. Directory listings list a number of firms but which one really works for you depends on the type of legal service you are looking for.
In most cases the best option is to shortlist an established firm. Steinepreis commercial lawyers offer clients specialised and comprehensive advice on a range of corporate, energy and resources and commercial matters. The first criterion is to seek to understand clients’ objectives and deliver service in an innovative, professional and constructive manner. Belief in service, quality and value for money are paramount. The staff is highly qualified and focused on understanding the needs of clients and working with them to achieve their corporate and commercial objectives.
Here are a few pointers that can help in selecting the right firm for your specific legal needs:
How reputed is the firm. Reputation would concern itself with the right values. How has the firm built it’s name? Is it known for honest and strong drafting skills? Check their standing amongst both peers and clients. Where are the firm’s management coming from. The places and position that they are professionally associated with will give you an idea of what the firm is about and what is stands for.
Check their profiles on Google or LinkedIn. It is good to know more about who you will be dealing with. For larger firm partnerships that they have with regional and international law firms gives an indication of where the firm is going.
Do your homework and check the last few cases handled. What were the results? Is the firm result oriented. Look for a Case Study or Practice Area summaries to see examples of the firm’s work. What are acceptable results? Has the firm achieved the same for their clients.
Understanding your legal position is very important. To understand where a client stands from a legal viewpoint is far more important than the size of the law firm. If the position is not very strong then all effort is money down the drain. For this do a little ground work and check that the attorney handling your case knows and understands the boundaries of privilege available as well as the legal protection available for witnesses.
