Our approach to legal practice
How would you describe the Clayton Utz approach to legal practice?
Brad Vann, Partner - Banking & Financial Services
We are a firm that will look for the answer in a very practical, down-to-earth way. Yes we have to pay attention to the legal principles that are involved but we will be looking for a way of actually coming to the solution that addresses the client's needs.
Kate Jordan, Partner - Media & Telecommunications
Our approach to legal practice is that we always try to see our matters through the eyes of our client to ensure that we're client focussed and we achieve their objectives. We are also entrepreneurial and flexible and we can find innovative solutions for our clients.
Gary Best, Partner - Real Estate
Clayton Utz really wants to align itself with its clients. It wants to sit beside the client, understand the client's business, where the client really wants to go with a particular transaction and then apply the legal skills, the insights, the experience that we have to the client's benefit so it's part of the team.
Linda Evans, Partner - Competition
We are, as lawyers, officers of the court and it's critically important that we uphold all of the professional value that go with that. At the same time, we then need to translate that into a commercial context for our clients and ensure that our approach to matters and the way in which we communicate is in language that they understand and it's that translation process that I think makes Clayton Utz stand out.
