Every week in the UK a “High Street” law firm goes under. As of June this year, 160 firms had been placed in intensive measures by the SRA. Rising numbers of the UK’s 11,000 law firms are facing financial collapse this year due to a “perfect storm” of legal aid cuts, banning of personal injury referral fees, growing reluctance of banks to lend and the prolonged economic downturn. (Financial Times, 23rd June 2014).

Are you weathering it?

As a fee earner, do you feel you lack the support and guidance you need to meet your commitments to bringing in new business?

As a Partner, are you worried that your exit strategy is being pushed back because your fee earners are uncomfortable selling and struggle to attract new clients?

  • Ever said out loud, “I’m a lawyer, not a salesperson”?
  • Are you new to, or uncomfortable with, selling?
  • How many hours of study have you undertaken in how to attract new business?
  • Did you ever imagine that being a solicitor would require sales skills or did you assume the title would do it for you?
  • Does talking about money make you feel uncomfortable?
  • Do you struggle to identify early, and politely disqualify out, people who make all the positive sounds of becoming a client but actually end up wasting your time and never committing?
  • Do you ever suffer from people backing out at last minute?
  • Ever wondered if asking for referrals makes you look desperate and unprofessional?
  • Are fixed fees liberating you or are you worker longer and harder for less?
  • Have you recently been used to compare fees?
  • Have you been given high new business targets and feel pressure to hit them at all costs?

We underwent Sandler training and we have tackled our obstacles and are speeding towards a strong new department. As a result of the training, our new client referrals have increased, including across our wills and probate department too, and I have skills which I can build on in both a professional and personal basis.” Marjha Golding-Evans, Solicitor, Head of Family Law, Hodders Law.

Join Benjamin Dennehy, a lawyer, business owner and sales trainer and Marcus Cauchi, Managing Director of Sandler Training South East. Together they help solicitors who love being lawyers but never signed up to be salespeople. Sandler Training has helped hundreds of companies and professional firms turn their businesses around and grow, even in crowded, competitive, price sensitive markets
