Senior staff professionals – whether responsible for finance, marketing, technology, personnel, or all of the above in overseeing all firm administration – can serve as strategic counselors who help the firm survive and grow. And all law firm staff – whether administrative assistants, IT technicians or other support personnel – play major, ongoing roles in the financial and organizational life of the firm that are enhanced when they know and are committed to their roles.
At LawBiz® Management, we’ve put together a series of resources and services designed especially for law firm administrators and staff. Our coaching and consulting services are customized to help lawyers focus on the specific issues and challenges they find most pressing. Our resource center includes relevant articles, newsletters, audio podcasts, videos, webinars, and more, and many of our books and practical guides were written with the sole practitioner in mind.
