Love of client
After ten years in the construction industry and a further ten long years struggling to become a half-decent lawyer, I started Vincent Young. The firm was born out of my desperate need for a place where I could survive and then thrive.
My first office was cheap and dark, with low ceilings. From that August day in 2005, we fought to become a highly regarded specialised law firm.
Today, our firm Vision speaks of “being the best”. We are not yet the best, but after nearly 20 years, we have grown a firm with a culture that reflects honesty, respect, and teamwork in a thriving meritocracy—a place where the very best of us prosper. Vincent Young’s values speak of accountability, excellence, efficiency and perseverance. All great qualities, yet the firm’s service value rings loudest and truest in my ears. That is our service towards the needs of others.
In my opinion, when Vincent Young undertakes a task for a client, it does so like few other firms. We exercise our skills with passion and involvement, rarely seen elsewhere. I believe we do so because of our “love of client”.
I had always thought I was more devoted and passionate about my clients and their needs than most other practitioners. But as I draft this letter and survey our sunlit office, I realise we have collected and polished a wonderful group of lawyers to the point where they shine like diamonds. These people reflect our culture and values, but most importantly, they passionately serve their clients’ needs. They do so because they love their clients.
In turn, our clients are like us. They value skill, passion and the concept of service from the heart.
These are exciting times at Vincent Young.
