About Cox Yeats Attorneys 
Cox Yeats is a leading boutique law firm which offers a wide range of commercial and personal legal services. To give the best service to our clients we believe that it is essential to understand their objectives and to deal with their legal affairs in the context of their overall requirements.   

Our aim is therefore not simply to give the best technical advice, but also to contribute to the development of local and international clients strategy and policy. In giving advice we aim to provide practical and imaginative solutions to clients problems and to present what can often be complex topics in a clear and non-technical way. 
To achieve this we ensure that our clients affairs receive the personal attention of the attorney responsible for the work in hand, while offering the client the facility of contacting other members of the firm who work in the same or similar fields of expertise. We avoid the rigid departmentalising of our professionals, as we believe that it is important that each of them should build up a wide knowledge and understanding of the clients business. 

Our professionals draw on the experience of others in their fields and from other groups within the firm to ensure that the objectives of the client are achieved. In this way we come to know the clients needs and are able to provide a quick and comprehensive response in relation to any legal problems which may arise. 
The simple vision on which the firm was founded, 'To make a positive difference in our world and to do this by consistently being the most dynamic and innovative law firm possible, to build real relationships with clients by offering highly personalized expertise and to service them with care and integrity, while coming up with winning solutions', is still today, the fundamental DNA on which this boutique law firm stands.
