The challenges you face managing a legal practice.

 

How effective can you be as a COLP, COFA or business manager, when as a fee earning lawyer and a manager/partner, your nose is constantly to the grindstone because the pressure to earn fees is so great?

Some practices are large enough to have an in-house management team, and as long as they do what they say on the tin, they are a positive contribution to the business.

For small to medium size practices, a management team is quite simply a luxury that often cannot be afforded and it can be a headache to find the right solution.

 

But there are ways to get the job done and Peacock Risk Management can help.

We understand that when managing a legal practice you have fee earning commitments and need support. You need a solution that is flexible, affordable and meets the needs of your business.

You may have a great team but certain roles are isolated and may benefit from an extra level of support or a “go to” person for particular areas of expertise.
