Accessibility to our clients is an essential part of the NRG Legal philosophy.

Partners are accessible, passionate and proactive and clients are guaranteed to receive responsive and personal attention.

We offer strategic commercial advice with a legal perspective.

We believe that practical solutions that are legally sound can produce reliable commercially driven results.

“Our clients take great comfort in the fact that we know the ins and outs of their business, so advice is given based on their overall strategy, which ultimately saves time and costs.” Graeme Jolly

We provide an effective service for a fair and reasonable fee.

With an up-front cost disclosure policy, estimates of total costs and duration of a matter are given in advance.

“Many of our new clients come from larger firms where, in the client’s view, the fees are exorbitant and are not commensurate with the actual value of work done.” Neil O’Shea

We make a commitment to forge strong long lasting relationships with our clients.

We take the time to gain intimate knowledge of our client’s business so we can better understand their needs and offer them the most personalized service.
