Clifford Gouldson can be a surprising place to work. We like it that way.
You might be surprised to hear the sound of laughter carrying throughout the office. You might be surprised to see the whole office taking morning tea together to chat. You might be surprised to find one of our Directors will be the first person to offer you help whether it’s a legal problem, working the coffee machine or moving furniture.
This is not your traditional law firm.
Understanding what makes Clifford Gouldson different means understanding the principles we consider most important. These are:
Integrity & Professionalism are our foundations
Clifford Gouldson is built on integrity and professionalism.
We are part of a profession – not just a business. We put the interests of our clients and our profession ahead of our own.
We strive to be successful, but not at the cost of our integrity.
Commercial legal solutions
Just understanding the law isn’t enough. Only by knowing our clients and understanding the business environment do we deliver outstanding commercial solutions, practically.
Open to change
We’re determined to meet the challenge of a changing profession by finding new ways of practising law, new ways of meeting our client’s needs and new ways of working smarter NOT harder.
As a business, as individuals and as a team we are open to the changes that will help us succeed.
Whether you’re part of our team, one of our clients or a business associate we want to hear your new ideas, suggestions for improvement and even your complaints.
We listen, we learn and we improve.
We are real people
Everyone has ups and downs. Everyone has triumphs and tragedies. At Clifford Gouldson we all share in the experience and are better for it.
We enjoy our work
We specialise in doing the work we enjoy. We work with a team whose company we enjoy. We foster a working environment that is a joy to come to every day.
This makes us better lawyers and happier people.
We are all evolving
We understand that we change as people and as a firm over time and so to will the Clifford Gouldson Lawyers Manifesto.
We aim to offer the opportunity for every one of us to grow and find our path. We don’t define people by their current roles or capabilities. Clifford Gouldson is a place where we support each other to be as awesome as we can be!
