Doing the right thing

We are tenacious and persevere to make the right decision for our clients and ourselves.

Standing in other people's shoes

We get under the skin of our clients’ businesses by listening more, talking less and understanding their situation in its entirety.

Since 2016, we've been proud supporters of Kiltwalk

and our people have been donning their tartan and lacing up their boots, walking to raise money for charitable causes close to their hearts.

Mindful Business Charter

As a firm, we are committed to nurturing and maintaining the health and wellbeing of our people, alongside providing excellent client service as effectively as possible, As part of this commitment, we are signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, which is a set of best practice, behavioural principles to tackle and reduce avoidable stress in the workplace. 

The principles govern both the way that organisations operate internally, and also the way in which organisations interact with external parties. We know that when people are stressed, they work less effectively, and they risk damage to their health. The MBC is designed to promote more effective, less stressful and healthier work environments, allowing people to perform at their best and deliver optimum client service.
