Charthouse Lawyers is the Sunshine Coast's destination business and estates firm, with a deeply held, customer-centric philosophy focused on helping small business people plan their personal and commercial lives. With experience in commercial, corporate, wills and estates, estate planning and real estate services, Charthouse knows that more and more Mainlanders are going 'bi-coastal' with a foot in the city and their heart on the Sunshine Coast. They believe having a Vancouver base to serve these clients is essential to Charthouse's long-term goals of serving their clients where they are.
Like many 253 Columbia members, Charthouse is driven by values:
"Let’s start with what empathy does not mean: sympathy. Sympathy is feeling sorrow or pity for others. Empathy is the act of putting yourself in the other person’s shoes to better understand them and what they are facing.
We’re not your therapist – we’re your law firm. Leading with empathy means we strive to demonstrate to others that we understand or seek to understand what they are experiencing, through our words and actions, so we can properly fix or accommodate the situation. It applies to our interactions with everyone, whether they be clients, co-workers, people we work with from other organizations, or whole communities of people.
Cultivating empathy helps us see issues from the vantage point of our clients, removing our own biases and acting for our clients from a place of mutual understanding. In this way we can determine whether the problem is something you can personally solve, or whether assistance is required."
We couldn't be more excited to have Charthouse join our community.
