How Cone Marshall Has Grown To Rank Among The Best

Law is a diverse field and there are many things that law firms can work on. Some firms prefer to work on all types of cases while others choose to establish a service on a specified area. This is what Cone Marshall is known for. The firm has specialized in estate, trust and tax law and over the years has developed a strong team of professional experienced in the industry.


In New Zealand, Cone Marshall is among the most successful law firms simply because it has the highest number of clients looking for help to solve cases of commercial litigation. The reason they have been receiving many applications from clients is due to the quality that has been instilled. Cone Marshall has employed experienced professionals who are also updated on current changes in the industry to offer clients the best services. The firm offers the best procedures of resolving problems across the entire country.


During the time Cone Marshall was incepted in 1999, there was little support from the government for law firms to advance their practice. This went on for few years and there were several difficulties before in 2005 things started changing. From 2005, Cone Marshall has recorded an upward curve of development. The efficiency and quality that has been achieved over that period has attracted clients from different countries, who have benefited from the commercial litigation support the firm has been offering.


In the last one decade, Cone Marshall has spent a lot on installing a new technological infrastructure that allows clients to access their orders online. The system has allowed a faster processing of cases and has enhanced accuracy levels. It also allows clients to present their files and vital information without having to physically travel to the offices of the firm.


About the leaders behind the success

She holds an executive position as the principal and has come up with unique ideas that have helped Cone Marshall to proceed towards the attainment of success. Karen Marshall works under the supervision of Geoffrey Cone, a law veteran whose presence at Cone Marshall has boosted the management team to draft winning policies.

George Gascon fined for soliciting donations

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon is being forced to pay $4,000 in fines to the Ethics Commission for soliciting donations at a campaign fundraiser. His Assistant District Attorney, Michael Swart, and his chief of staff, Cristine Soto DeBerry, are also being fined to the tune of $1,400 each.

At the campaign fundraiser, Gascon allegedly attempted to solicit donations from employees of the city at a fundraiser for his upcoming campaign, and things aren’t looking too good for Gascon or his camp after he was sued in January after a long-time investigative assistant claimed that an employee of Gascon’s office used a racial slur (specifically “the n-word”).

Unfortunately for Gascon and his camp, these aren’t the only past misfortunes of thi group of politicians. Two months later, in March, reports came out that the San Francisco Police Union were making claims that Gascon made drunken, offensive remarks towards minorities as well as many members of the police union. This report was the latest in a long-standing feud between Gascon’s camp and the police union, but coming off the claims of one of Gascon’s employees using the n-word toward a long time investigative assistant, Gascon and his camp looked to be in hot water.

And now, Gascon is finally paying the price for his mistakes, but is the price high enough? Altogether, the politicians paid $7,800 for their misdoings (which Gascon and his camp claim they didn’t know were violations), but if Gascon is still running his campaign, does it really matter how much he’s been fined? After making so many mistaked, it’s hard to believe that Gascon still holds power, and its even harder to believe that a politician as seasoned and experienced as he is doesn’t know what is and isn’t against the rules.

To be the district attorney, Gascon doesn’t seem to be too sure of the rules, let alone the laws – after both he (drunkenly) and his employees (soberly) have reportedly made disparaging remarks against minorities as well as those that work for them – along with breaking the law while trying to stay in office – who’s to say that this menace will stop should he do so?
