Gabriele Marano, LLP was founded in 2012. Since that time, the firm has embraced a paperless business model, with the capacity for all employees to work securely and effectively from remote locations. In spite of this, the professional staff chooses to travel to the office most days, largely because of the harmonious culture of collaboration and cooperation they have developed over the years. “We work in teams as we develop our litigation strategies with appreciation and utilization of each team member’s strengths. This approach not only yields excellence in all areas of our practice, it has allowed us to cultivate litigators that are now practicing at the top of their field”, says Ms. Marano. She credits much of the firm’s success to the dedication and skill of her partners and staff. “We are fierce and calculating advocates to our adversaries and compassionate counsellors to our clients”.
The firm is mindful of giving back to the community and supports and promotes various charities, including; food networks, local animal shelters and organizations that provide school supplies to underprivileged children. “We make charitable giving fun and interesting in order to encourage maximum participation. By making everyone part of the process we are engendering a sense of community within the firm while raising awareness of these worthy causes.”
Over the years, Gabriele Marano, LLP has developed a loyal client base of health care providers and institutions. “It is not uncommon to receive notes and letters of gratitude from our many clients who have been thrilled with the service we provide and the outcomes we have achieved for them. This, above all, makes all the hard work worthwhile.”
Her advice to other business owners: Be in service to your clients and your valued employees. Making them a priority is key to developing and maintaining long-term relationships. No business can succeed without them.
