Starting A Law Firm | Setting Up A Solicitors Practice

When is the best time to start your law firm? Do you need a High Street presence, or can you operate from home and generate clients from your website? How much marketing budget do you need to start your law firm?

If these questions and many, many more are currently running around your head at the moment, I can help you. More importantly, I can save you thousands of pounds in wasted marketing spend.

I have been helping solicitors to promote their legal services since 2003. Before then, I was a practising solicitor, but marketing legal services has always been my passion.

I have a huge problem though, and you might too. Frequently, solicitors come to me too late.

They come to me when they have already spent (wasted) thousands of pounds on a website from a major provider that WILL NEVER generate any clients for them. There are many reasons for this, the most common one being that they use their own ‘bespoke’ content management system, for which read “This ensures that you are tied to our service forever and can never leave, despite the fact that we will build you a website which will never do what you need it to do for you; namely generate clients”..

Or they ask for my opinion about the advertisement that they have just placed having spent hundreds of pounds producing it, which from looking I know will never make their telephone ring.

Some come to me having just spent thousands on High Street office premises which simply will never repay the investment.

Please, please do not make these mistakes. I am here to help you and to save you money.

Why? What’s in it for me?

For the majority of you, nothing. My services will simply not be suitable for you, but that is fine. I get a lot of satisfaction from saving solicitors from wasting their money. I get more satisfaction from ensuring that they start a profitable and successful law firm rather than spend months sitting at their desk praying for their telephone to ring.

Some of these solicitors will tell their legal friends to come to me. Others will be a perfect match for me so I will help them.

So please, take just two minutes to enter your details in the form below, and let me save you from some ghastly mistakes, sleepless nights and an empty billing book. I have done it many times before, so please let me help you too.

Case Study

From biggest fee earner to no fee earning whilst doubling turnover

I’d been looking for somebody to help me with marketing for a while, and I came across Nick on Google.

That was three years ago, and in that time it’s fair to say that he’s had a massive impact on my business, and my life as a result.

In the early days, my goal was simple and specific: increase the turnover of the business so that I could take more money out of the business.

I had an amount in mind, and I expected it to take years to get there, but when I achieved it in just six months, it began to dawn on me that this guy really knew what he was talking about.

As a result of that early success, and with Nick’s help, I realised that my expectations were too low, and what I could actually achieve, with the right thinking and guidance, was far beyond what I’d ever imagined.

What Nick saw – and what he made me see – was that my business had fantastic potential, but to realise that potential, things needed to change.

Even before Nick got involved, we were getting a decent volume of leads, but it was what was happening to the leads that was the problem.

We weren’t tracking them, there was no process in place and to top it all off, we didn’t have a clear pricing structure, which meant that we were nowhere near as profitable as we could be.

And that’s where Nick came into his own. He built us a bespoke lead generation and sales process, and the results were staggering.

We pretty much doubled our turnover, allowing me to build a four-person sales and marketing team that gets us more leads and more sales.

Of course, Nick’s Google Adwords expertise has been a key part of our growth, and today it’s a hugely profitable marketing pillar for us.

But regardless of the medias or mechanisms we’ve used to grow over the last three years, it’s been Nick’s rock solid marketing plan that underpins it all.

He’s stopped me trying this and that, and got me to focus on the things that’ll have the biggest impact on the business.

And I think there’s a lot more to come – we still haven’t implemented everything that Nick has given us to do, and when we do, I reckon we’ve got around another £250,000 of revenue per year to add to our figures.

And it’s not just the business that’s seen a transformation – it’s been a personal transformation too.

When Nick first got involved, I was the biggest fee earner, and consequently I was reluctant to stop getting involved in cases.

Nick eventually made me see that if I was serious about growing this business, that needed to change and as time has gone on I’ve taken on less and less work – now I don’t do any of it.

And I only wish I’d done it earlier, because the result has been me having more time to build the business, and spending time with the people that are important to me.

Not only that, but the business is stronger, because it’s much less dependent on me.

Nick was right about that one, as he has been about pretty much everything else – it pains me to say it, but it’s true!
