Planning and implementing an effective practice management strategy is a key factor in establishing a law firm’s long-term prospects.

This fully updated edition continues to offer invaluable practical advice on how to develop and implement strategic plans for every aspect of a firm. It takes a new approach to each chapter, providing coverage of cutting edge issues and helping firms to plan for today and tomorrow. These issues include:

  • determining the structure of the business in light of the Legal Services Act 2007
  • developing appropriate policies on discrimination
  • managing through an economic downturn.

In addition, the authors address the more complex and problematic areas of business management such as developing strategy and budgeting, and measuring and rewarding staff performance. Managers will find a wealth of guidance on matters such as:-

  • Structuring the business
  • recruiting and retaining staff
  • creating and developing effective client relationships
  • e-business
  • marketing your practice
  • IT management.
The Practice Management Handbook is the ideal guide for firms seeking to improve their competitive advantage in the new legal marketplace.
