The Team

Our Culture

 

:

Family orientated, close knit, community focused, pragmatism, passionate, open minded, integrity, trouble-shooters

We are a close-knit and family orientated business. And the values that keep a family together also play a big part in how we work.

That means you can trust us to work passionately on your behalf with genuine integrity.

At the same time, we believe very strongly in keeping an open mind and responding specifically to your needs, rather than taking a one-size fits all approach.

It’s a combination of principle and pragmatism that has served our clients well for many years.

We’re also proud of our place in the Albany community and take on a variety of pro bono work on behalf of several charitable trusts and through the Albany Rotary.
