What are you looking to do?
Ever had an issue or opportunity appear on a board agenda time and time again?
It’s a common scenario in any busy business. Often the solution to a groundhog day issue is to engage extra assistance on a project basis to make that good change happen. However, it’s not easy to find the right experienced partner to trust with confidential or sensitive information if you are a law firm.
To be successful, whoever you reach out for help must understand how legal works. They need to understand the mechanics of delivering legal services but also the structure, terminology and culture of a professional services firm. Not only it is crucial to enable quick progress but credibility is key to engaging with law firm owners and staff.
Smart legal firms are now tactically outsourcing some operational elements and employing external trusted partners to help make those changes needed to keep up. The aim might be to improve profitability, expand the business, get fit for a potential acquisition or succession, or simply to be able to seize opportunities that come up in the market.
It’s a rare organisation that always has spare capacity or even the right skill-set to run special projects as well as deliver the day to day business.
