Our Approach to Service
Three principles govern our approach to legal service:
- We practice value. The firm is structured to provide world-class legal representation efficiently and cost-effectively, delivering a valuable return on the client’s investment in us. From tailored alternative fee arrangements to proactive strategic advice, smart staffing, and regular performance checks, we enter relationships with a commitment to give our clients what they pay for and then some.
- We define success by our clients’ metrics. Whether we’re establishing an individualized set of documented service expectations and standards for each client or building custom teams of legal professionals to address each particular need, our focus is solely on helping clients achieve their business goals on their terms.
- We understand our clients and their industries. We take the time to learn about each client’s business, its competitive environment, and its strategic goals. This intelligence guides our counsel and efforts to achieve broader, longer-term objectives rather than a quick win.
A relationship is an investment, and Quarles & Brady understands the enduring rewards of a solid collaboration. We as a firm strive to see goals and benchmarks through your eyes—and then use our experience and insight to best position you to exceed them. Your challenges are our challenges; your triumphs are our triumphs. With Quarles & Brady, you're not just a client—you're a partner.
