There are just over 10,000 practising law firms in England and Wales, the majority of which have fewer than five partners.

These businesses represent the heart of the legal community and are the area of the profession that’s most thought of being “at risk” in a rapidly expanding marketplace.

This webinar looks at the challenges of running a small legal practice and the steps you can take to ensure good business structuring, a good working culture, targeted marketing and effective recruitment.

This webinar will cover:

  • the need for a business plan and “buy in” for that plan
  • the establishment and growth of good working culture
  • effective management structures and strategies for small firms
  • targeted marketing
  • how to recruit in an increasingly competitive market
