It is essential to keep your clients informed about the reconstruction of your practice. Your old clients must feel comfortable that they will continue to work with their existing team of lawyers and receive the same high standard of service and care. Professional assistance is given to the former equity partners on the best ways to advise clients of the restructuring.
Lawyers Inc. provides a Client Liaison Officer to specifically ensure that any client queries can be dealt with in a positive and expeditious manner.
The Consultancy Agreement makes clear, in the unlikely event that you choose to terminate the Agreement, you would still have access to your original client base in order that they can elect to revert back as your clients.
- After the commencement date, a further meeting is held to discuss how we can help expand your Pod.
- The Internal Agreement is designed to be flexible to anticipate Consultants retiring, receiving annuities from the Pod and junior lawyers becoming Consultants within the Pod. This has the advantage of providing structure and security to each Consultant’s exit strategy and each associate fee-earners personal aspirations.
Maintaining Your Firms Name
‘Our aim is that each Pod continues to flourish utilising the goodwill it has loyally and locally built-up which is why we encourage the Pods to continue to use their previous name, ie. ABC and Co., becomes ABC and Co, part of Lawyers Inc.’
- Prior to the commencement date, members of our PR, Marketing and Virtual Team meet each proposed Consultant to ensure a fresh website is up and running from day one.
