Assisting Law Firms with ALL their Transitions
Strategic Planning is worthless - unless there is first a strategic vision.
- John Naisbitt
Like any business, a law firm needs a strategic plan if it wishes to enjoy long-term success. All firms have limited resources available for branding, expansion, leadership development and technology implementation. The strategic plan provides goals, structure and parameters for use of those resources. The plan, however, must reflect present and future market conditions and present a realistic roadmap for the firm. What is appropriate for one firm in specific geographic locations, historically strong in certain practice areas and industry sectors and facing a particular competitive landscape will likely be entirely inappropriate for others.
Too often law firm strategic plans fail because they are not market or data-based, contain a list of compromises that undermine focus and thus waste resources, are not embraced by the partners, lack specific strategies, tasks or metrics, and/or only occasionally receive appropriate attention during the implementation phase.
