Be different

be different is PKA's slogan/motto. It is our continued challenge & commitment to being different from our competitors. It best describes PKA in terms of:

  • being a leader for change;
  • why we now are where we are;
  • where we are endeavouring to go; and
  • how we intend to achieve our objectives.

The slogan pushes us to be different in thought, focus and action, and to make a difference for our clients & ourselves.

We understand that clients look for differentiation in legal products and outcome driven processes. To be different must translate to providing clients with tangible benefits - better delivery of cost effective, timely and high in quality services that are practical in application and add value.

PKA people see things differently. We challenge our mindsets to think about and appreciate issues and do things differently. We are candid with each other when dealing with issues. Much time & energy has been invested in our continuous attempts to understand & properly deal with our people issues, and the Firm is always searching for different & better ways of achieving results.

be different captures the essence of PKA's being. Its beauty is in its simplicity, but its true value and strength is found in the full extent of its deeper and enduring meaning.

The slogan is as much a statement to PKA's clients of what we are about as it is a constant reminder to PKA people about the enduring value of being different. This gives us the flexibility that enables us to respond to changes.
