Our experts have surfaced five areas of strategic focus and actionable best practices across the entire contingency fee law firm business workflow – from lead generation and intake to client experience, litigation, and accounting.

5 Key Areas of Strategic Focus for Growing Your Law Firm

  • Marketing: Maximizing your brand with a strong and consistent brand promise and moving your marketing to digital can help your firm build its name recognition and competitive edge quickly and across many channels.
  • Intake: Optimizing the customer experience can set your firm apart as one that puts the customer experience first. Reexamine and retool your processes to make those experiences more meaningful and to deliver on your brand promise.
  • Technology: When planning for a plateau that will end when markets take off again, it’s integral to establish a thoughtful technology strategy that embraces tools available to drive engagement, streamline the client experience, and fuel exponential growth.
  • Accounting: When you need to be engaging clients, having accounting support is essential. You can offload the stress of managing finances and put a full-time financial expert in the right place in your firm when it is needed most.
  • Finance: Firming up your financial operations to leverage case cost financing is critical to unlocking capital that has been tied up in case resources and experts; good financial management will smooth out your cash flow until the markets recover.

Each of these areas of strategic focus requires smart investment of time and finances to create and leverage opportunities. They also require allying with a strategic banking partner who understands your unique business model and can provide flexible solutions for law firm financing. Investing in these strategies will not only set you up for success in growing your firm, it will also enable you to continue doing business and making bold decisions during times of uncertainty.
