BriffaWay – If we don’t have it you don’t need it

Intellectual Property

I love my local hardware store on Upper Street. As a pretty hopeless diy-er with the occasional need I first set foot inside encouraged by the bold sign in the window which said: ‘IF WE DON’T HAVE IT YOU DON’T NEED IT’. True to the sign once inside their emporium the staff are knowledgeable and helpful and think nothing of explaining what you need and how to do the necessary. It is almost as if they are waiting for novices like me and get great pleasure from sorting things out for me. This is about as different an experience as buying hardware on-line as I can imagine and the contrast between the two is something that applies in the law business as well.

I like to think that my law firm is like this shop. Exceptional service. Pleasure in helping. Making sure you buy the right thing and understand enough to also help yourself. Recent times have brought a proliferation of legal websites aimed at start-up businesses and offering to get them the cheapest deal on legal work. Typically you let the site know what you want and lawyers then say what price they will provide it for. A bit like me searching for some hardware on-line and then selecting the cheapest bid. What you miss when you use such a service is the benefit of telling your story and hope and dreams to someone with the their experience to guide you. We can let you know what you need and what you don’t and we make it our job to help you help yourself while we are at it. Just like my hardware store, access to this type of support is invaluable. It doesn’t cost any more to come to us and get this guidance – it only costs your time, but time you won’t regret investing in building your successful business.
