Explanation:
Of course I don't know how the sentence you quote fits in with the rest of your text, but maybe something like this would work:

It is our objective to serve / support / serve and support our corporate clients on a long-term partnership basis.

Or

Long-term service and support for corporate clients on a partnership basis.

HTH!
