Do You Make These Common Practice Management Mistakes?

Running and sustaining a successful law firm is complex and time-consuming. There are many potential missteps that can be made along the way, but repeating the same mistakes can be one of the biggest setbacks. A little misstep here or there might not seem like a big deal, but some wrong choices can end up costing your firm dearly. To best ensure growth and success, it’s important to learn from any past missteps and avoid making similar errors in the future. Familiarizing yourself with common practice management mistakes is an important first step in setting your law firm up for success.

Lack of Communication With the Clients

Communication is a critical component of client-law firm relationships, yet all too often law firms overlook the importance of providing updates to clients. Without reminders that progress has been made and their needs are being addressed, individuals can become frustrated – even leading them to end their contract with a given company entirely! To ensure customer satisfaction, it’s essential for legal teams to view every situation from the perspective of those paying for services; if any questions arise about what’s going on or who’s taking care of what, these should be answered right away so no one feels abandoned and forgotten.

Not Having an Effective Intake Process

An effective intake process is vital to growing a business since it can be the difference between closing and losing sales. Not having one in place, or failing to complete a sale could cost your firm dearly. Taking advantage of opportunities and investing time now into creating an efficient workflow will pay off hugely down the road. 

Neglecting After-Sales Service

 Taking the time to make your clients feel valued is essential for any successful law firm. Show appreciation by inviting them to leave feedback or testimonials on their experience with you, which can then be used as proof of good service and shared on your website or social media platforms. Not only will this help strengthen relationships with existing customers; but it also serves as an excellent way to attract new ones!

Not Delegating the Administrative Work

On average, lawyers only spend 2.5 hours of their time daily on billable work. This is due to hours of administrative work that they can actually delegate to other employees. This is one of the worst mistakes a law firm can make in its practice management. Admin tasks are time-consuming and will not get you more clients. Give the mundane task to legal assistants and let your lawyers be lawyers!
