Literatim Legal Services

Our Red Chair

A chair is a seat typically having four legs and a back, but for Literatim the RED chair is a reminder of our core values of DETERMINATION, RESPONSIBILITY, AUTHORITY and EASE.  We adopted these core values to align to the purpose of the Company and each member of our team is expected to act according to and take ownership of these values:

DETERMINATION (like the chair’s red colour)

At Literatim red draws attention like no other colour and it confirms our determination to deliver our services objectively and with purpose.

We are determined do the right thing even when it is difficult.

AUTHORITY (like the “seat” on a board of an organisation)

At Literatim acting with authority means that we have the moral and legal right, ability or capability to deliver our services.

When we exercise authority, we ensure that we are subject matter experts and that we have the know-how to act in the best interest of our clients.


RESPONSIBILITY (like the “chairperson” of a meeting or organisation)

At Literatim being responsible means being dependable, keeping promises and honouring our commitments. 

We deliver our services with transparency and integrity to maintain positive relationships.

EASE (like an “armchair”)

At Literatim we deliver our services with calm and ease and undertake to treat all our clients with dignity within firm boundaries.

We strive to provide our clients with peace of mind.
