Karma’s Philosophy and Origins

Karma Lawyers was born out of the need to provide corporate legal services in a manner that respected clients, the lawyers that provided that service and the profession.

The word karma in its colloquial context refers to “cause an effect”. Do good, and goodwill happen to you and do bad and “karma’s a B!^%@”. Our philosophy stems from that belief and translates into the service we provide.

We work in the corporate space, and this is where we make and can break our reputations. We will only assist where we know that we can be effective and cost-effectively deliver a result.

If we feel your matter is better or cheaply resolved in either a non-legal means or through a different specialist – then we tell you why, and we tell you fast. Your time is valued, just like we value our own. 

We believe in being honest and accountable to our clients. We do this selfishly because we like to sleep well! Seriously, though – it is how we were raised. Also, we think it gives us all the good business karma that we ever hoped for… That is our “true north”.

You are always going to get our legal truth when you engage us. That is always true for us, but matters even more, when the truth isn’t flattering and or may even impact our ablity to get paid. 

That is our Karma Philosophy.
