How we work

The Muckle Way

Legal ease.  You could be forgiven for thinking it’s just one of those clever little phrases that companies use.  Throw-away.  A smile in the mind, nothing more.  But that is, fortunately, where you’d be wrong.  You see, in just two words legal ease actually represents everything we do at Muckle.  And how we do it.  It articulates an ethos that runs right through our firm from top to bottom, and also neatly encapsulates what sets us apart from everyone else.

In a nutshell, legal ease means having all the knowledge, experience and talent necessary to help guide you through complex commercial law.  It means being able to distil complicated concepts into very uncomplicated solutions.  It means getting the right result and making it look effortless.  And by ensuring it’s easy for our clients to get the best possible advice, we also put them at their ease.  No stress, no panics, just the reassurance of expert help and guidance whenever they need it.  Equally as importantly, legal ease summarises what we are like as people.  And perhaps the best way of explaining what that means is to say that clients find us ‘good fun’ to work with.

As a result, the relationships we build with those clients are strong and enduring.  And being business people ourselves, we understand exactly what is required and expected of us.  So our Partners are responsible for driving the highest levels of advice and service.  The Client Relationship Partners we assign to our clients are there to provide continuous support and assistance, as well as ensure that we do what we say we are going to do, on time and within budget, every single time.

So there you have it.  Legal ease.  You could say it’s the opposite of language containing an excessive amount of legal terminology or of legal jargon.  In other words, legalese.

Muckle LLP is an ‘outstanding firm with vision, immense knowledge and a rock-solid core of excellence which runs through the heart of the Firm.’ From its single-office platform, it continues to attract clients and mandates on a regional, national and international basis.
