Progress often comes through spectacular leaps.
And it just happened to us, too: FILIP & COMPANY is the new name under which our law firm continues the PeliFilip business. The name changes, the value stays the same. However, something will change.
Clients want stability; we know it very well. And this is precisely what we want to give them in the next century. Our new name flows naturally from a business vision that we can finally make happen: “Destination One Century”.
We want to become the first local law firm that will turn one hundred. We will be “shapers of the future” and we think of the future generations in FILIP & COMPANY. But this aspiration can only come true if we take the way we operate today to the next level.
This is why we are putting into place a system that will allow everyone in FILIP & COMPANY to be recognized, valued and rewarded based on the equal opportunity principle. In an industry obsessed with the importance of “being a partner” our system recognizes the true worth of each and every person in the company. Because we firmly believe that good people should be valued and rewarded at every level. Our value is given by the value of the people who form Filip & Company. They will channel all energy to the benefit of the clients.
This is the “why” behind our new name and this is why the “…& Company”. People, all our people, are and will remain important – because we want to be the first Romanian law firm that turns one hundred.
Cristina Filip, Managing Partner FILIP & COMPANY: “We have set out to create a company where the brand survives the partners. They may come and go. And our company certainly means much more than Cristina Filip’s vision or the total competence of the partners. Few things are truly resilient and lasting in Romania. I hope Filip & Company is one of them.”
Of course we have fully accepted the consequences of implementing this vision. And they came quickly, in the form of the departure of some of our colleagues. We would have preferred them to stay with us, but we understand that different people see the future in different ways.
“Destination One Century” compels us to have a long-term vision of business. We will go beyond the «rapid growth, regardless of the cost» frame of mind, and we will increase our involvement with educational programmes and the development of transformative best practices for the local business environment. We know we can do it.
Because we are in good company.
We are in FILIP & COMPANY.
