A new toolkit business has launched to help transform the way law firms and businesses in other sectors approach strategy and planning.
After Monday nights' announcement from the Government, more of us than ever before will be working from home this week. For some of you this will be a completely new experience and one that might take a bit of getting used to.
As the holiday approaches we would like to take this opportunity to inform valued clients and potential new customers of our Christmas opening hours - we will be closed from 5pm on Tuesday 22nd December and will reopen on Tuesday 5th January 2021.
The SRA has announced that they have re-commenced work to assess levels of compliance with the rules on price and service transparency following a temporary pause of this work during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our Chris Davidson recently published a piece on how in-house legal marketers manage many spinning plates as part of their roles. Having been an in-house marketer in leading law firms himself (and indeed with various members of our team having formerly been in-house marketing professionals), Chris noted that he finds it “heartening that law firms are recognising the value of having in-house marketing support during these times of unprecedented change in the legal profession.”
But even with the best in-house legal marketing resource, there are many sound business reasons for outsourcing all or part of your firm’s digital marketing, whether working alongside an existing in-house digital marketer or not.
We first wrote about this topic in 2019. Back then, we noted that we were speaking to more law firms with in-house marketing staff than ever before. I have an in-house marketing background, and it was great to see law firms recognising the value and importance of specialist marketing support.
In the first of our Client Experience series, we’re focusing on making a great first impression. We’ll take a look at the importance of making a great first impression for any new client, and share some tips on how to optimise your process. Making every enquiry count.
As will have been the case for many of you recently, spending more time at home with school age children than would be the case under normal circumstances (in my case nine-year-old twin girls) is not without its challenges.
The Law Society of Scotland has introduced guidelines designed to improve price transparency for legal services in Scotland
The phrase ‘to have all your eggs in one basket’ is commonly used to describe a vulnerability through an overreliance on one potential route to success, with the idea being that if that route becomes a dead end, you’re stuffed.
So, here we are – another week of isolation, social distancing and working from home. It’s the 6th of April 2020 and I have to say that it feels a bit more normal now. Days of actually being in the office, frittering money away on expensive coffees and sandwiches seem strangely like a distant memory. For me there has been a significant reduction in expenditure, for others a significant, maybe terminal, reduction in income.
Hope seems to be building that there is an end to the lockdown in sight. We’re still not exactly sure when this is going to happen but other European countries are loosening restrictions before the impact on their respective economies becomes intolerable. The predictions seem to change by the moment, oscillating between pessimism and optimism, depending on which news outlet is being read or heard at that particular point. One thing all seem to agree on is that it is going to take some time for the economy to recover.
Over the past few weeks we have covered both the impact of the coronavirus and lockdown on our business and the businesses of our customers. What we have not covered, so far, is the impact of the Coronavirus on the people who make businesses work. As discussed last week, every working morning we have a virtual scrum and during these Zoom sessions I am confronted with a patchwork quilt of my colleagues’ faces.
At the moment when rapid changes to your business are required to help you succeed, it’s worth soaking up the knowledge and experience of others to see how you can apply them to your own firm.
Last week our Directors Chris Davidson and Dave Kerr presented a webinar with legal practice and case management software specialists Denovo. In it they discussed the impact Coronavirus has had on consumer behaviour and what trends are emerging.
When one thinks of Mike Tyson one does not necessarily think first of his wisdom. His words, which form the title of this post, are thought to be an adaptation of Joe Louis’ earlier comments: “everyone has a plan until they get hit”.
As we move into week two of pretty much full lockdown, it is interesting to see traffic trends as they relate to the traditional retail law firm landscape. At Moore Legal Technology, we work with law firms all over the UK and beyond to help them make the most of the Internet and its capacity to generate work.
