Law firms tend to leave a lot of revenue on the table, because they don’t spend enough time focusing on financial metrics and don’t effectively employ technology tools.
That’s the sad part of the story — the good news is that it can all be remedied by adopting sound financial practices.
So, in this episode of the Non-Eventcast, we brought on Brooke (not Blake!) Lively, of Cathedral Capital, to talk about how law firms can capture more revenue.
First, we define what a “KPI” is, and how it relates to law firm finances (5:01), before talking about which specific KPIs law firms should be focused on (8:41). Next Brooke discusses how changes to law firm financial management effects engagement agreements (13:27).
Then, Brooke relays how she discovered the Holy Grail of effective law firm revenue capture: the evergreen retainer; it’s your secret weapon (14:36).
Finally we delve into financial management technology for law firms (19:13), including accounting software options (23:11).
Managing partners spend a lot of time worrying about revenue. So, why not try another tactic: listen to this podcast, and instead worry about counting all the extra money you’ll make.
