Because our philosophy is to leverage the core competencies of our partners, much of what we do involves managing resources (and people) on an outsourced basis. We work very closely with employees of our client families, with third-party advisors, brokers, lawyers, accountants, and other service providers, who share our values and philosophy, to bring a full range of resources and services to our clients.
