Austen Smith is committed to a modern, flexible and friendly approach. The partners are willing to discuss any aspect of the firm’s procedure and fee charging in an effort to accommodate individual requirements. We also recognise that certain litigation requires a particular approach and will seek to match counsel both on expertise and personality. We are committed to implementing and maintaining best practice, and periodically seek the views of clients on the level of service which we offer.
Austen Smith is able to offer first class reception and conference facilities. Our dedicated conference rooms have facilities for every requirement and the demands of all forms of legal practice.
Austen Smith is willing to discuss and enter into block agreements for particular areas of work and operates client service protocols. These protocols seek to regulate the level of service (particularly the return of paperwork) and meet the changes to the legal services market with the necessary flexibility.
