AGRECA is an abbreviation of three Latin words: AGere, REspondere, CAvere which, according to Cicero, revealed practical essence of lawyers’ work in Ancient Rome. Agere – giving advice according the claims and procedural case conduction, respondere – replies to the requests of individuals concerning legal doubts, cavere – development of the best formulas for various legal acts (agreements, wills etc.). Subsequently, agere, respondere and cavere were transformed to the main activities of lawyers – representation in courts, general consultation and preparation of legal documents.
The principles of Roman law, which have passed through thousand-year history, became a sample, for law system formation in many states. The work principles of firm partners such as competence, conscientiousness and confidentiality, efficiency, use of non-standard approaches to the solution of legal issues, were taken as the basis for AGRECA law firm activity.
