H&A Law Firm has always been on the front line to anticipate changes in the law, now a key part of corporate growth strategies.

This proximity is undoubtedly one reason why our clients are so attached to our firm, as is reflected in their loyalty: 67% of our clients have been with us for over 10 years.
For the past several years, serving our clients multi-disciplinary needs has been a major growth path for our firm. We continue to pursue our strategy of forming partnership with Experts that share our values, and range of practice areas.
