At Liberty, we have long held the view that we would rather do a few things very, very well, than try to blanket the market with different services, and risk lapses in quality and reliability. We believe that staying focused, while expanding geographically, is a better model than trying to add services outside of our core competencies. That's why we've stayed laser focused on our core markets in personal injury, disability and standard of care.
This philosophy squares well with our commitment to stay close to our clients, by building our company from the ground up, hiring local talent, and thereby making each of our service locations as truly local as possible. This way, experts and clients gain the scale advantages of a regional, or national company, without sacrificing the personal connections that are so important when a critical deadline looms, or a special need arises.
Ours is a bottom-up approach, in contrast to the top-down approach of simply buying into a market by purchasing companies and folding them in. We think our method is better for clients and experts, and better for the industry.
The founders of Liberty remain actively involved in the management of the company. This allows us to maintain the small-business devotion to customer service and attention to detail, even as our growth has accelerated, and the number of experts and clients we serve has increased dramatically. Our commitment, to the experts and clients we serve, is to maintain this focus in the years ahead, and to never lose sight of the things that really count, our relationships with experts, clients and the medical-legal community.
