All firms talk about culture, we have one:
We’re an antifraud firm because we value truth. We believe truth exists, and it matters. Ayn Rand once said: “We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.” In this law firm, we bring that truth toe-to-toe with fraudsters. If we had a formal firm creed, it would probably read something like this:
We believe that truth exists and truth matters.
Truth is not subjective. There is no such thing as my truth, your truth, his truth, or her truth. There is the only truth.
Perverting the truth is morally atrocious. People who do this deserve consequences, and we deliver them.
Vindicating the truth is more important than social approbation. We aren’t country club lawyers. We won’t wash over the truth just because someone doesn’t like it.
We reject the concept of a grey area between true and false.
