When you’re running a firm it can be hard to stop and think

Best practice isn’t just for big and global firms. Success lies in understanding, planning and common sense. That’s why we’ve developed a range of fixed-fee services for smaller professional firms.

Marketing and business development audits

If you’re giving some thought to marketing at the moment this is a really great place to start because it sets out what’s working, what isn’t and a logical plan of action. This will be tailored to your objectives. We can look at your entire marketing and business development activity (or inactivity) or one particular area (for example digital marketing or client care). Using a mixture of primary and secondary research methods, we’ll take a really ‘warts and all’ look at what you want to achieve, what you’re doing and the barriers that will stop you achieving your objectives. Whatever we find we’ll write it all up with a R(ed) A(mber) G(reen) report, showing the ‘hot list’ of things you need to do next. The results are presented in plain English and a way that you can ‘pick up and work with’. Find out more…

 

Strategic planning and action plans

We think our audits are a fantastic place to start – a chance to take a step back and see the things that will stop you from achieving objectives. The logical next step is usually to work out an action plan and marketing strategy, setting out what you’re going to do over the coming year (and longer) to achieve each of your organisational objectives.

Mentoring and coaching

Alongside all of our audits and planning we offer mentoring and coaching for partners or marketing professionals. This is perfect for keeping plans on track as well as skill development. Find out more…

We were recently asked, by some barristers, why they should bother with the directories this year... Frankly, we're asked this every year. There’s no denying that filling in the Chambers & Partners (and now subtly different Legal 500 submissions form) is an annual...

Three steps to small firm marketing success

It can be easy to think that marketing strategies and reports are the domain of large, glossy firms with marketing teams. The thing is, when you're fighting daily fires and looking after one too many clients, the thought of doing marketing or business development can...
