We start with basic questions to help focus our efforts...
What keeps you up at night? What areas of your business do you think could be improved?
What’s your business strategy? What differentiates you from your competitors? What's your exit strategy?
What do clients think of your work? Who are your best clients? Your worst?
Are you working longer hours and not seeing any improvement in performance? How's your cash flow?
What processes and infrastructure are in place? What practice management technology do you use?
We focus on the nuts and bolts of how your firm differentiates and functions - if these are broken, you pay the price.

Law Firm Strategy:
Do you know where your practice is heading? How would you feel if the pilot on your next flight wore a blindfold? Your firm’s business strategy is the foundation for your success. It sets your direction and focus. We work with you to get your law firm from its current state, to what you dreamed it would be when you started. To do this, we re-evaluate your firm's strategic plan and help you strengthen how you compete, what clients you target and how you make money. Our approach to strategic planning is to provide you with options and tools to make informed decisions, with the understanding of the risk and possible outcomes. We help create the path so you grow the right way.
Are you stuck in a rut? Burned out? Wish you had a sounding board for major business decisions? Not sure why your practice is stagnant? Perhaps a business coach is what you need. From holding you accountable to objectively assessing your business to brainstorming new markets and solutions, we help you think about your business in ways that you wouldn’t do on your own.
Law Firm Management:
Are you stressed out or frustrated with how work gets done? Are you working longer hours and not seeing any difference in performance? Chances are you focus more on the billable work and leave "the management stuff" for later. This is the nuts and bolts of how your firm functions - if it's broken, you pay the price. Working side-by-side with you and your team, we help improve your day-to-day operational flow – something that usually causes either stress or wasted effort (or both). We do this by picking apart the details of how the firm operates – processes, procedures, workflow, and matter management. We also work with you to improve your legal project management skills. As your firm becomes more efficient, you are better able to handle increases in business. That spells profit and more time to do the things you enjoy.
