What let’s focus means for me

"The core values ‘personal’ and ‘to the point’ were already key when the firm was established in 1992. I called it ‘advocacy 2.0’ back then and I still experience it that way today. Our environment and that of clients is changing, which is all the more reason to remain close to each other so that we can face any challenges together."
