Respect of our clients and of their business philosophy is the foundation upon which Lucya builds her practice. Lucya is attentive and listens to our clients’ needs so as to achieve practical and efficient results by all legal means necessary. Providing creative and efficient legal advice and alternatives is therefore the focal point of her practice.
In a highly litigious environment, most parties believe justice is best achieved in a courtroom and endeavor into extensive litigation where often the outcome is unpredictable to some degree. Lucya rises to the challenge of fighting for our clients in court, but also appreciates that, at times, a strong settlement out-of-court will ultimately benefit a client effectively and allow them to focus on the operations and success of their business.
