Aphorisms. Humor

Our job is psychologically intensive and very responsible. It is not a secret that a lawyer or a consultant is perceived by most people as a strict, scrupulous and conservative person. It is somewhat true.

However we are not like that. We reject formalism and unreality. We are practitioners, and it is only due to our good knowledge of life and keen mentality that we undertake to help our dear clients settle particular vitally important tasks.

We can see different aspects of life and arranging our observations we create new rules, methods and technologies. In addition to purely professional know-how, our piggy-bank contains a deal of common universums, philosophical observations and wise counsels.

Love to wisdom, new knowledge and permanent search for NEW AND UNKNOWN THINGS, help us use the whole experience of the mankind accumulated over the centuries and put it at the service of our clients. We value high wittiness and inventiveness, sense of humour, ability to explain complex things simply and demonstrably.

This is why the section Sententious Sayings and Humour appeared at our site, which you do visit for our joy, and we hope will go on visiting. Some people will find it a useful support in their work and a source of straight-from-the-shoulder quotations and epigraphs, and for other people it will become a pleasant possibility to have rest and to laugh together with us at judicial curiosities and anecdotic situations that accompany our saturated and interesting job.
