Maintaining high business standards is everyone’s responsibility (from The Solicitors Journal)

21 February 2014

As a law firm, the ‘right work’ can be easily dismissed as simply providing legal advice. However a more important consideration when it comes to defining the ‘right work’ is price. Are you charging in a sensible, profitable way for the firm, and for clients, in an attractive way? While the hourly rate isn’t dead, it is fast becoming outdated and in many cases is simply no longer fit for purpose.

To improve your service levels, look at every part of your business clients come into contact with.

What our clients say about us

After a rigorous tendering process Size 10½ Boots came out as the obvious choice. Their understanding of our culture, issues, market and direction showed that they had put in the effort. Coming to the end of the first year and we are seeing the results that were promised and a new enthusiasm from the firm to embrace BD. I have no doubt that the investment we have made in Bernard, Doug and the team will be paying dividends for many years to come.

Jason Edge, Head of Marketing and Business Development, Mayo Wynne Baxter Solicitors

Our experience with Size 10½ Boots has been a breath of fresh air and, speaking as someone who would have laughed heartily at the idea of BD training for barristers 3 years ago, I am a convert and looking forward to what we can achieve with our new found direction and approach.

Scott Baldwin, Head Clerk, St Mary's Chambers

Bernard provides refreshingly down-to-earth advice. He was great at demystifying and humanising a series of marketing concepts and giving us practical action plans we could each take away from our training session. The training was lively, productive and fun.

John Haresnape, Head of UK Business Development, Taylor Wessing LLP

We needed to train our lawyers on the art of bringing in new business. Size 10½ Boots designed and delivered a high impact training programme, supplemented by one-to-one coaching for senior managers. The result was to create an energized marketing culture which has had a positive impact on the bottom line just when we needed it.
