Generosity of Spirit
We often get asked what is meant by Generosity of Spirit, which is one of our core values and the firm’s tag-line. The answer is both simple and complex depending on your individual situation. It is the Swaab ethos, our character or personality, it can be distinguished by our sentiment, moral nature, or guiding beliefs as legal practitioners and collectively as a firm. It is embodied in our Swaab Brand of Service and in the way we approach our long standing client relationships and professional networks. Our clients say we are good listeners, we show empathy, exceed their expectations, keep our promises, share insights, and invest both time and knowledge which leads to them achieving remarkable outcomes, collectively this is known as ‘Generosity of Spirit’.
