  4. 4. Our Vision and Our Mission • Our Vision: We aspire to be a firm whom our clients trust will listen to them, advocate for them, and deliver for them, and where our employees find purpose, mastery, and autonomy. • Our Mission: Serving the interests of our clients by addressing their legal challenges and opportunities so they can achieve their objectives.
  5. 5. We Created Our Culture Beginning With Our Clients’ Interests • And from there we built a culture for our people.
  6. 6. Traditional Law Firms • Are partner-owned, profit-driven, and conservative.

  9. 9. Our People • We know our employees are amazing people who seek purpose, mastery, and autonomy in what they do here.
  10. 10. Design Thinking • To achieve our mission, we use design thinking. • We listen; we frame the issue; we ideate; we prototype; we test; and then we repeat the process.
  11. 11. At Kalon • We think about the user (client) experience and how to improve it.
  12. 12. At Kalon • We create a strategy that best meets the client’s objective.
  13. 13. At Kalon • We pursue that strategy as a team, so a client gets more than a lawyer; she gets the firm.
  14. 14. Therefore • At Kalon, our people are purpose driven.
