A month into the new year and already facing challenges huh? Well, if it makes you feel any better every year law firms face brand new, or sometimes even reoccurring challenges. In 2018, the team at Lawyers Help Lawyers want you to be ahead of the curve now and in the future. Many of the challenges that legal professionals face relates to money and technology. This year alone, law firms will face an exponential increase in both.
Technology… Well the expansive internet we know and love is constantly changing, and more active businesses have transitioned their services online. Yet, legal professionals argue that they must rely on a form of loyal relationships; it’s largely beneficial when concerning face to face interaction with a professional and a client. However, this argument is becoming less and less viable due to an increase of active users on social media, which for anyone who has a cell phone, is the go to source for everything, and I mean everything. If your business or law firm doesn’t have a presence on social media, get out of the cave and get online (at least have an up to date website)! If you don’t have a website, you need to build one asap, and I would even urge you to do it before the creation of a social media profile for your company. It will help your business outstandingly for recognition, but if you lack that online presence you can almost guarantee your practice/firm will be notably overlooked.
Advancements in technology increase pricing competition as well. Let’s face it, in the end clients can demand for things they need but expect to see alternative fee arrangements that fit them more suitably. This is where outsourcing is specialized and used in every successful industry, even legal work. Law professionals and firms, need to utilize their options in the cheapest manner possible, but for the law firms who are unable to reach those resources, they will face the greatest challenge of all…. Time and money. There just isn’t enough!
