our core values

Expertise guided by Grounded values.

We have always challenged the dated view of what a law firm is and how it operates. Our five Core Values are represented by an acronym, COURT.


Client centric

We strive to be more than just a legal partner, but also a key pillar of support for our clients’ business success. We believe in delivering the highest quality work, solving problems with creative solutions, and responding to our clients with efficiency. Our accessibility and understanding of our clients’ businesses are paramount to us, and we are dedicated to creating an exceptional experience that surpasses their expectations. CNP is committed to exceeding our clients’ expectations in every way possible. We want to be the key business support and trusted legal partner that they can always count on. To achieve this, we go above and beyond to ensure that our service is marked with excellence at every level.


Our people

Authenticity and humility define our relationships at CNP. That's why we seek to know our people beyond the office - we want to understand their hopes, fears, and dreams. We are committed to creating a workplace where every person feels seen, heard, and valued. Because when our people thrive, our firm thrives. We put the highest priority on recruiting, developing, and retaining outstanding people who exemplify our Core Values and what the firm represents. We know that the success of our firm depends on the continued growth and development of our people, and we are dedicated to creating a workplace that fosters creativity, innovation, and collaboration.



We celebrate the successes of others in the firm and encourage every person to excel and achieve. We know that when our people are given the support, encouragement, and resources they need to succeed, they can achieve great things. That's why we are committed to creating a workplace where every person is valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential. We firmly believe that collaboration is the key to success. We are not just a group of individuals working towards a common goal - we are a one-firm-firm that is committed to breaking down silos, hierarchy, and barriers. We know that when we work together, we can achieve great things.



At CNP, we are radical thinkers and problem solvers who challenge the status quo and push the boundaries of what's possible. We embrace innovation and progress and believe that change is necessary for success. We encourage our people to have an entrepreneurial spirit - to think like business owners, take risks, and be willing to try new things. We believe that the best way to create value is by being innovative and disruptive, and we actively seek out individuals who share that vision. We keep things simple and efficient and are not afraid to shake things up and do things differently because we know that's what it takes to succeed in today's business environment.


Thirst for success

We have a thirst for knowledge and a hunger for growth that knows no bounds. We are constantly seeking to expand our skill sets and knowledge base, always pushing ourselves to be better than our competition.
