Guiding principles

These six client service principles guide the way we work with our clients and allow us to deliver a distinctive service. We strive to:

Deliver One Firm to our clients
We bring the best of the Firm’s global experience, practice experience and industry knowledge to our clients. We assemble and integrate the best teams to deliver the highest-quality legal work in any one market or across many.

Keep an eye on the big picture
We apply our global knowledge to our clients’ needs. In an increasingly interconnected world, you look to us to combine an international perspective with local insight to help resolve your business challenges.

Provide clarity and judgment
We always give our clients a clear and commercially focused point of view based on a solid understanding of your business.

Find a way through
We are agile, inventive and determined to navigate our clients through today’s complex business environment. We look for approaches that might not be obvious to find original solutions.

Step into our clients’ shoes
We put our clients first and we are always responsive to your needs, priorities and pressures. We understand your perspective and show that we think and care about your concerns as much as you do.

Build lasting relationships
We take the time to understand our clients’ immediate and long-term issues. We anticipate change and think ahead for you, putting your interests ahead of ours to create stronger relationships.

The responsibility of global citizenship

In 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals—the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These 17 Global Goals aim to end poverty, protect the environment and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. They follow and expand on the Millennium Development Goals adopted in 2001. Achieving the goals will require participation from governments, the private sector, civil society and individual citizens.

Acquit Law became a signatory to the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative, in July of 2016. Signatories commit to doing business responsibly by aligning their operations with ten principles related to human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. The Compact emphasizes collaboration and innovation on issues such as the Global Goals.

Acquit Law is committed to fair and ethical operations that respect the interests of all our stakeholders and recognize the importance of our natural environment.

We adhere to the highest standards of professional conduct and continually communicate and train all of our lawyers and employees in ethics and professional responsibility.

In a major new initiative aligned with our commitment to the UN Global Compact, we introduced training on business and human rights for all of our lawyers to ensure they are aware of how this emerging field affects their area of legal practice.

We are proud to help advance the Global Goals through our Global Pro Bono Practice as well. Our work ranges across all the issues covered by the Global Goals, from combating human trafficking to promoting good water governance to closing the credit gap for women entrepreneurs.
