Larger law firms are not only focused on practicing law, but also face the demands of running a business enterprise. Issues such as cash flow, marketing and business development, hiring, promotion and succession practices, as well as technology integration and new practice development all require the attention of the managing partner and others in the firm.
Smaller practices face a series of challenges that are unique, such as converting from a collegial setting to a more formal business environment, and running the practice more like a professional services firm, a business, in order to break through to the next level.
At LawBiz® Management, we've put together a series of resources and services designed for law firms. We offer different resources that are specific to every size firm, whether large, mid-sized or small.
Our coaching and consulting services are customized to help firms manage their practices more effectively by focusing on the specific issues and challenges each firm is facing. Our resource center includes articles, newsletters, audio podcasts, videos, and webinars that provide information and guidance and is searchable based on your firm size. Our books and practical guides help you address the big picture questions your practice needs to be considering to stay successful in the evolving legal landscape.
