How To Tell If Your Law Firm Business Model Is Broken

I have had quite a few chats with solicitors over the years during which I discover that their business model is broken.

They don’t use these words, but I soon discover that this is the truth of the matter.

The conversation usually goes something like this:

“Nick, I don’t need any more clients. I don’t have enough hours in the day for the ones I already have.”

“Oh no, I am working six or seven days a week and I am barely breaking even.”

“Oh no. Would you like me to tell you how to fix that then?”

“I would love you to!”

“Start by putting your prices up.”

“Oh no, it’s not that simple Nick. I can’t do that; I would lose all of my clients.”

What My
Clients Say

“Nick had been advising me to start an email newsletter for ages but I was put off because I wanted to prepare a list of all of my old clients first. I finally took action when he reminded me and said “just start the list today”, so I did.

Nick was right. Within four months I have an email list of 1,000 people and it is growing all of
the time, as are my referrals!”
