As a result of sustained growth throughout the last six decades, it is today the leading firm in terms of number of professionals and billings.

Our services bear a “distinctive hallmark”, which embodies our commitment to quality, client service, ethical values and a solid business approach which has rewarded us with an impressive client portfolio.
