Our tradition


Explanation:
Creo que las otras 2 opciones que muestras son más para algo que va de generación en generación (de padres a hijos), suponiendo que el negocio no es familiar.

In that case, I like "heritage" more, http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/heritage
I don't know why "legacy" has always sounded too "Star Wars" to me but that's just my opinion.

Our legacy (because it's about people, "quien lo fundó, etc.)


Explanation:
Tradition would apply more if it were about the institution(s), but since it's about people, I think "legacy" is a better translation.

Nuestro Legado


Explanation:
Tradition: Es más de las costumbres y antecedentes de un pueblo, no de una empresa.
Heritage: Éste es más como de personas, del "background" de alguien, de las circunstancias que lo rodean.

Legacy: Éste es el correcto, porque se refiere más a lo que como persona u organización alguien deja en el mundo. A una empresa jurídica le conviene más hablar de legacía, como su historia y sus contribuciones, que hablar de tradiciones o herencia... esos dos términos simplemente no le quedan.
