Herrington Carmichael Launches New Values

Herrington Carmichael’s leadership is excited to announce the launch of their new values. This launch comes after months of planning, getting insight from employees, and choosing what best represents the firm and all we strive for.  

Yavan Brar, the firm’s Managing Partner and Head of Corporate and Commercial, says this about the launch: “A key factor for the management team has been to create a positive, supportive, and enjoyable environment. While we recognise the need for continuous improvement, it remains top of our list of priorities. We have implemented various new initiatives to bolster employee wellness and experience. Our hope is that these values reflect our past efforts and guide our decisions going forward.” 

As part of the process, time was spent analysing our firm’s history – the words we have adopted and the culture that has unconsciously been created around it. The marketing material we have used to demonstrate what makes us stand out, and the culture of both client-centric and employee-focused service delivery. We wanted our brand and values to look forward, focus on the practicalities of the now, and not forget the legacy of what has brought the firm here.  

Our Vision

Our commitment is to our people and our clients. We want to be more than just lawyers. We are a people orientated firm who provide holistic solutions and first-class service to a diverse range of clients. We want to be your go to professional adviser for your personal and business life cycle. We strive to provide opportunity for growth and learning, encourage ambition and foster a culture that gives Monday’s a good reputation.

Our Mission

To be a leading provider of legal services in both life and business. 

Our Values

Our values spell out GRACE, defined as bringing honour or credit to something or someone by one’s attendance or participation. It’s not one of our brand values, rather, a happy coincidence. 

Through carefully thought-out strategies, our teams are continuously growing in both size and knowledge as our people successfully strive to be the best in their field. Our commitment is to grow our people as individuals, knowing they will play a key role in the future of our firm. We believe in empowering staff through continuous learning and training at all levels, as well as giving space and opportunity for innovation. 

In business and in life, it is the relationships we make and the people we invest into that are essential to our growth. Being relationship-focussed lawyers is what we believe has given us sustainable growth and success as a business. We provide legal services that first strive to understand our clients and their needs before holistically finding a solution that best benefits them. 

We are ambitious in our strategy through setting clear goals, challenging one another, and providing opportunity to grow and succeed. We provide space for everyone to achieve in an inclusive working environment. 

We actively encourage collaboration, it is a core aspect of our working culture. We believe we are stronger together, helping one another and empowering each other to reach goals. 

We strive for excellence in all we do. We are committed to our clients and we care about the quality of our work; we look after our people; and we care about the environment we work in. We are intentional in creating and maintaining an open and engaging working culture within first class facilities. 

We look forward to seeing these values in action and seeing how they positively impact our strategies and decisions moving forward.
