Clients are demanding “More than Law”. They are looking for firms who know how to genuinely collaborate, not just internally, but with other complementary consulting, service, technology and knowledge providers to supply a range of integrated legal services that deliver real value.
High Impact Innovation
We help law firms design and deliver different client conversations, leading to insights and solutions that transform traditional client relationships and deliver more value for both parties.
We review Business Development functions, investment plans, proposition and processes to identify how extra value/revenue can be delivered to the firm’s partners and ultimately, your clients.
Profit Improvement Programmes
Law firms’ growth can be hindered by inefficient support functions, our proprietary law firm heatmap identifies ways to improve efficiency, reduce costs and build a flexible operational infrastructure.
Legal Services Centres
We have significant experience in designing, building and operating onshore/offshore legal services centres for routine legal and support work which should be delivered much more cost efficiently.
