Virtual anyone?

Virtual anyone?

As I wrote in the preface of my latest book, Growing a Law Practice during Covid-19: “Just a short while ago the concept of allowing lawyers and support staff to work from home seemed like a pipe dream. It could never work. The sky would fall. Nothing would get done. And then along came Covid-19 and kicked the world and the legal industry in the ass! And the sky didn’t fall. And the work got done!”

Basically, COVID-19 forced the legal industry out of the dark ages, into the 21st century, and pretty much, overnight. There was resistance, of course. But as time went on, people adapted, the glitches and challenges were worked out. And, what many people discovered is that their productivity went up, and they were able to create more balance in their lives.

In case you are considering taking your practice or firm virtual, here are some things to consider.

Expanded client pool

How large a market do you want to serve? You don’t have to be restricted by geographical limitations anymore. You can be licensed in one province or state and work from anywhere. Clients are also used to working with their lawyers virtually. So, it no longer means limiting your business development and marketing to your neighbourhood.

New App for Lawyers to Grow your Practice or Firm

Introducing the OnTrac Practice Builder App

I am very pleased to announce the new OnTrac Practice Builder App. It’s an App to help lawyers build and grow their practice or firm. It will take you through the same steps I follow with my one-to-one coaching clients.

Learn at your own pace. I have learned through the years many lawyers are self-learners and they prefer to learn on their own. This App provides the best of both worlds. You can learn on your own, but with the guidance and wisdom accumulated over the past 15 years.

Check it out. 

Managing growth part two: New hires, right seats

Managing growth part two: New hires, right seats

In part one of this series I covered when to hire and who to hire. In this column, I am going to focus on getting your people in the best roles and what to do when and if you are outgrowing your staff.

So, you’ve found the right people, great. Now, as Jim Collins says in his book, ‘Good to Great’, “make sure they’re in the right seats”. This means make sure everyone on your team is in the right place within your firm, doing the most valuable tasks that support you, your firm and your clients. Leverage their best skills.
