Law Firm Leadership Management

The success of an organization depends on its leaders. Yet, law firms are unique in that their leadership often rotates, creating breaks in continuity that can result in a lack of a strategic vision. And without a comprehensive vision, many law firms are left operating on an ad hoc basis, diminishing their abilities to grow and compete.

Jaffe’s experienced marketing and business strategists have years of experience in providing leadership management consulting to law firms to help them overcome the challenges of change. Through collaboration between your attorneys and our consultants, we jointly identify goals and plan out an executable roadmap to move you from where you are today to where you want to be. We also work to understand your law firm’s organizational structure and revenue programs to provide analysis on opportunities for improvement.

What Jaffe can do for you:

  • Identify short- and long-term business goals.
  • Assess the effectiveness of your firm’s current policies and practices.
  • Collaborate to develop a custom strategic vision for your firm.
  • Provide onsite management training to foster effective leadership.
