It is important to Analee that her clients receive the highest standard of service through open, transparent communication and efficient and effective processes.
Scoping of issues early on in the process is a key aspect of the unique service that she offers her clients. Analee is a proponent that few issues require determination by a third party. A reasoned analysis of the facts and law combined with good faith discussions between the parties often take most issues off the table early in the process. Tribunal and Court hearings can become unnecessarily lengthy and costly when this work is not “front ended”.
Another trait that often differentiates Analee from others and is highly valued by her clients, is her drive to find out more. She constantly asks “why” things are being done in a particular way and remains open to finding creative, more efficient alternatives.
Ascertaining clients' objectives and strategically mapping out how to get there is the first step. This may require the traditional adversarial approach or it may require a more creative, collaborative approach. No matter what approach is strategically chosen, Analee's clients can feel confident in her unwavering commitment to thorough preparation and knowledge of the facts and the law. Whether it is in the context of a hearing or a settlement discussion, she is always prepared to provide strong legal representation.
