How Do Solicitors Find Time To Grow Their Law Firm

The solicitor closed the door to his office on Friday evening. He was frustrated that he hadn’t quite achieved what he set out to do this week but feels confident that next week will lead to him making better progress.

He is deadly serious about growing his law firm; he is the main fee earner at the moment with two other junior solicitors, but he realises that to grow his firm he is going to have to do less and less fee earning.

He is not yet sure how he feels about that but will face that challenge when it comes.

First thing first, he needs to put together a plan and then follow it to get more clients coming in more consistently. He is going to give that some thought over the weekend whilst his head is clear.

Saturday morning arrives. “I wish I hadn’t done that” he mutters under his breath.

He has made the mistake of checking his email and seen an email from “That Client!”, once again throwing his toys out of the pram. This client has been the same ever since the solicitor agreed to reduce his fee when he accepted the instruction over a month ago. He realises now what a mistake that was, as ever since then the client has been in control of the relationship, not the solicitor.

Even though the law firm owner KNOWS that he can sort this issue in a matter of minutes on Monday, it is now eating away at him and intruding into his weekend.

He is cross that he checked his emails.How Do Solicitors Find Time To Grow Their Law Firm

The weekend passes, the stew subsides a little and he reminds himself that this week is going to be better as he heads into the office on the Monday.

He arrives to find that one of his solicitors is off sick (always on a Monday he notices) and the receptionist is cross because one of the secretaries moved something on her desk. He spends the first few hours sorting out the office chaos, before losing the day to emails and staff small talk.

Another week passes and again nothing has changed. “Next week”, he says as he leaves the office on Friday!

However, the next week comes and goes, then the next one and still he is no closer to moving his plan forwards. He worries that another year is going to pass before and he is still going to be in the same position that he finds himself in now……

Does any of this resonate with you?

Case Study

A straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

I first stumbled across Nick when searching on Amazon for help growing a firm in the legal sector.

Straight away I was struck by his no-nonsense approach, so after checking out a preview of his book, I bought it on Kindle and started devouring it straight away.

What was immediately apparent was that Nick really does know what he’s talking about, which was hugely refreshing in an industry with plenty of bluffers and chancers.

I found the fact that Nick has actually been there and done it in the legal world very compelling indeed, and after finishing the book, I knew there was plenty he still had to teach me.

I booked a free call, which contained plenty of value, but what became clear is that if I was really going to get Nick’s personalised help to grow my firm, I needed to do it properly, so after speaking to a couple of Nick’s clients to reassure myself I was making the right decision, I took the plunge, and booked the Steady Stream of New Clients meeting.

And I’m so glad I did.

From the moment my wife Rachael and I arrived, Nick put us at complete ease and we quickly built up a strong rapport, and thanks to the pre-meeting preparation put in by all parties, we were able to wring a huge amount of value out of it, because most of the fact-finding had already been completed before the meeting began.

Consequently, the meeting was chockfull of useful, actionable information, and most importantly, that information was grounded on what actually works in the real world – no theory in sight.

When we left Bristol, we were hugely energised and excited; but more than that, we also had clarity, and three days later, things were even clearer, thanks to the report Nick prepared for us detailing exactly what marketing we needed to be doing AND how to make sure that that marketing was actually implemented.

Having used a consultant in the past, my biggest fear was that there’d be a lot of talking around the issues, and a whole lot more questions than answers, but that simply isn’t how Nick works.

Instead, he calls a spade a spade, and fuses that straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

If you’re considering booking one of Nick’s Steady Stream of New Clients meetings, I would say, unhesitatingly, that you need to go for it”
