Core Values

Christensen Hsu Sipes LLP provides legal services around five core values that are interdependent and of equal importance. These values govern our practice of law, firm management, recruitment, and training.


Communication is a multi-dimensional value that must be timely, professional, thorough, unfiltered, and transparent in order to be effective. Effective communication promptly informs the client and seeks her advice and input as a matter is handled. Open communication and listening are encouraged amongst our lawyers and staff to foster team work and shared information so that the best-informed decisions can be made.


Excellence in legal representation requires thoughtfully understanding the scope of retention, thoroughly investigating the facts and researching the applicable laws that impact the advice given, and efficiently preparing for advocacy in meetings, depositions and before the court or arbitrator at hearings and trials.


Practicing integrity informs every aspect of the firm’s interaction with others and is expected from all employees. Integrity means truthful communication, diligence in work, honesty in reporting, genuineness in relationships, and trustworthiness in advice.


A law firm’s time and advice has value when it embeds scholarship in its legal services. Scholarship asks the right questions, knows what it does not know, and finds the right answer efficiently. Scholarship identifies the resources that will make a difference and captures those resources on behalf of the client. The written product reflects the knowledge and experience to persuade. Scholarship provides the competitive edge.

Strategic Advice

The importance of setting forth a strategy for resolution is the guiding paradigm for every case. Drawing together the interests of the client and the constellation of relationships between the insured, brokers, and insurers in an international market requires both a legal and business perspective. Strategic advice is the differentiator for the firm and a defining attribute that embodies our firm culture.

Our Team

The firm is comprised of accomplished counselors, litigators, and trial lawyers. We are a unique blend of talent and experience committed to protecting our clients’ interests.

Our Practice

Our collaborative style of practice is based on a firm culture of mutual respect, integrity, open doors, and a willingness to listen and understand.  In a word, leadership.
