Many annual reports contain a range of facts and figures with performance reporting for the past year, setting out the goals reached and where the challenges have been. We could have told you in more detail about how we think we achieved a 5% increase in our turnover in 2015/16, in some challenging market conditions, or the outcome of our inaugural learning and development programme. All these are laudable aims for an annual report, and I hope we will turn to these in future years. We wanted to take the opportunity to talk about why we are in business, and how we consider our clients benefit from commercially-trained, highly-motivated and values-aligned lawyers, who are experts in your sector.
Of crucial importance for all of us is what motivates us to get out of bed each morning and come to work at Anthony Collins Solicitors. These motivations include being able to:
- Advocate on behalf of individuals in disadvantaged circumstances
- Qualitatively improve businesses that are having a positive social impact
- Help reconfigure services to deliver greater responsiveness to customers and value for money
- Advise on property developments to bring a range of new housing to a community
- Complete a transaction designed to improve the outcomes for a community
If you are interested in finding out how we can use our specialist sector knowledge, commercial acumen and legal advice to benefit you and your organisation, then we would be delighted to talk to you.
