We assist with everything from business and corporate matters, environmental issues, municipal concerns and personal legal matters including divorces and criminal defense.” Jim has a strong work ethic and believes the working environment is important in maintaining success within the company. Having a positive relationship with colleagues is essential and must be taken seriously. Working in a toxic environment will only lead to negative outcomes as staff will not be working to the best of their ability which will in turn, produce negative results. Being open and approachable with staff and setting a positive example for them to lead by is key as James mentions, “I lead by example and maintain an open door for our staff.” Keeping up to date with current affairs and changes impacting the industry is an integral part of maintaining a successful firm. It’s essential to know how to deal with changes that could potentially affect the business. “Over the years’ marketplace changes impact areas of practice, firm technology and staff compensation. It is important to be aware of the dynamic situation and to be responsive.” Technology is widely used across the firm, therefore having the latest software and expertise is crucial in keeping an innovative working environment, as stated by James: “We believe it is very important to keep up with the latest technology trends. Although traditionally law firms are not known to be the most innovative and adaptive businesses out there, we understand the importance of ‘keeping up with the times’ to improve the experience for our clients.” “Ultimately, it is very important to adapt to not only technology trends but industry trends as well. Our progressive approach to each individual case our firm handles insures that our clients are satisfied with the work put in by our employees.” At Fausone Bohn, LLP, the use of technology is practised to enhance the firm and the expertise of the staff, as explained by James. “New technology can be unfamiliar and can make adapting seem more difficult. As hard as that may be, our approach is to get ahead of these technological advances to make it easier for our firm to adapt. In that sense, we attempt to use new technology as an advantage instead of an obstacle to overcome.” Moving forward, the firm aspires to continue the success they have achieved and go on to grow their already reputable name to a wider audience of clients. “Looking ahead, the continued growth of the firm and its reputation over the next decade is certainly a founder’s aspiration, and as such I will be working hard alongside my various teams to ensure that we offer the very highest standard of solutions to our clients and that they receive the most innovative services on the market.” K Company: Fausone Bohn, LLP Contact: James G.
