Our Principles

Our primary objective is to provide superior quality legal advice to our clients, applying the highest international professional and ethical standards of care and acting with responsibility to the legal industry and the markets in which we are active.

We aim to provide our clients with cost efficient, accurate and effective advice and representation and add value to their business. We apply the highest standards of fairness and honesty in all our interactions with our clients, people, opposing counsel, representatives of the courts and the civil service and promote the ethical practice of law at every opportunity.

 

Corporate Responsibility

We are committed to an active corporate responsibility strategy which encompasses charitable donations, the allocation of a significant proportion of our resources to pro bono matters and taking active steps to reducing our environmental footprint. We choose local small businesses as our suppliers or service providers where possible. We also support a number of charities, foundations and non-profit institutions on an ongoing basis, with a focus on children and community welfare providers, children’s hospitals, orphanages and homes and cultural and educational organisations.

Pro Bono

Our pro bono programme extends from acting for individuals and advising foundations, charities and non-profit institutions, to participation in research projects run by NGOs. We act on an ongoing basis for non-profits and foundations, assisting them with structuring, tax efficiency and fund raising techniques and management, to secure their long term funding and operation. We also represent individuals in human rights cases.

Diversity & Equality

Bernitsas Law promotes and applies the principles of non-discrimination, fairness and equal opportunities to the way it works and delivers its services, all aspects of its professional dealings and all its policies and procedures. This includes its relationships with clients, suppliers and third parties, the engagement of professional services and the instruction of experts. We are committed to ensuring that our workforce reflects and is representative of the community in which we are active, to offering all our people the same opportunities to achieve their full potential and to creating a healthy, cooperative and happy work environment based on diversity and inclusion.
