In this blog, we feature insights into key considerations for how to grow your law firm.
As attorneys experience success in building up a practice, an important consideration is how to grow your law firm from a disparate group of attorneys to building up an integrated law firm.
According to John Gomez, founder and president at Gomez Trial Attorneys , it requires a determined and dedicated effort from everyone. Importantly, there are four keys for how to successfully grow your law firm.
What are the 4 keys for how to grow your law firm?
- Align your organization: Define your future vision and core values
- Data is king: Invest in a robust case management system
- Establish consistent processes: Get everyone on the same page
- Plug into your business: Take a business view
For John Gomez, identifying the vision and core values for the law firm and then aligning it to the entire organization is foundational to law firm growth. “Defining the future of what that is going to look like. Defining core values — what matters to the organization. And ensuring that every person that is on that team has aligned values, goals and objectives. If you don’t have that alignment on your team, it’s not going to work,” he emphasized. ”
Building a robust case management system for tracking, reporting and performance metrics is also essential. Layering in thoughtful, operational processes will ensure the law firm performs at a consistent high level.
Above all, John Gomez emphasizes taking a heightened business approach to running the firm with a strategic plan that’s supported by particular milestones and guided by process and data.
