Law firm management, skills training and retreat facilitation

Law firm management, skills training, and retreat facilitation

Over the last 25 years I have advised approximately 250 law firms on their management, strategy and profitability.  In particular, retreat facilitation, reviewing and developing management structures and management skills training.

My clients are mainly Top 200 firms in the UK and Ireland who I work with in connection with:

  • Partner retreat facilitation
  • Management skills training for associates and junior partners
  • Chambers decision making, management and leadership
  • Law firm leadership, strategy and profitability
  • Law firm mergers

My aim is to provide the best possible support to clients in these core areas so as to help them respond to the dramatic change taking place in their markets.

The 3rd edition of my book, Profitability and Law Firm Management, was published by the Law Society in May 2016.  Click the link for details.


The Law Consultancy Network

I am a founding member of the Law Consultancy Network – a grouping that brings together a number of highly experienced independent law firm management consultants who have the same ethos – our vision is to be the leading management consultancy in the areas that we specialise in.  The Bar Consultancy Network was launched in 2011 with similar goals.

Seminars and publications

Each year I run a number of seminars in London, Dublin and Lisbon and these can also be run in house.  I speak at and chair conferences for the Law Society and facilitate events for the Law Management Section.  In recent years I have undertaken a number of projects with my colleague Vicky Ling for the Law Society and the Ministry of Justice in respect of legal aid.  Our latest reports are available under “downloads”.

I am vice chair of the Law Management Section.
