Solicitors. Are Your Fee Earners Fully Occupied?

For the end of my daughter's 18th birthday week of celebrations we went to Center Parcs; the newest one at Woburn.

Solicitors. Are Your Fee Earners Fully Occupied?

It was impressive.

I was intrigued about the model, so did a bit of Googling and found the business report from 2014. They had 97.7% occupancy across all of their 4 parks (Woburn wasn't there at the time).


Most hotels or guest houses would die for that kind of occupancy.

When you consider that you can only book a three or four night stay, it is even more impressive.

It made me wonder how they do it.

You see, I am not even sure I like Center Parcs. I generally prefer my own space when I am away and I still haven't forgiven it fully for snapping my achilles tendon in 2003. Although that snap and enforced period of sitting down did force me to finally set up my law firm growth business; every cloud and all that…

So how do they do it?

I think I know the answer. They get families to reconnect; even with darn wi-fi everywhere across the park.

We went for a long walk around the perimeters, like the caged animals which we were.

We strolled around the lake and the nature reserve.

We swam together. We laughed together. I am not too ashamed to admit that my daughter and I also screamed together – loudly! We had no idea that the giant inflatable we were on was suddenly going to drop off the edge of a man made cliff, then slam you up a slope, back down it two or three times and then spit you out at the other end. My 15 year old son was on the ride too but he barely flinched. He's far cooler than I ever was. Mrs J was too clever to get on in the first place.

We also made up games on the giant chalkboard in the lodge. I can thoroughly recommend both "Chalk Connect 4" and hangman with each clue based on things that happened in Center Parcs that day. That was funny. My kids are very sarcastic – I wonder where they get that from?

Back to the 97.7% occupancy, I have a question for you.

How occupied are your fee earning staff?

Unless they are all at 100% occupancy, which I find is rarely the case, making them busier is the fastest way to put more money in your pocket.

What you do with that money when it arrives is entirely up to you, but I can heartily recommend Center Parcs Woburn to 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”
