I’m sitting across from the president of my law company, sitting in his dark gray, leather-bound office, and he is talking about the first of the new year. The year of the new law firm. I’m sitting there, nodding along with his words, and I’m listening to the guy talk about how the new law firm has gotten better at his job. The law firm is getting better and better. And it’s a good thing.
That’s the thing about law firms. They don’t change for the better. They change for the worse, and they always change. The law firm’s clients are old, their work is routine, and they are getting old. Law firms are a way for wealthy people to make sure they can afford to hire a bunch of lawyers and pay them a lot of money. The law firms get better and better because they are better at their jobs, but they aren’t good at everything else.
If a law firm is doing its job well, then its not that tough to be a lawyer. But when a law firm is doing its job poorly, then its really tough. And its hard to be a lawyer when youre doing your job poorly. Thats what makes it tough for law firms to change. The best part about Law Firms is that they dont change for the better, they change for the worse.
Law Firms change for the better because they are good at their job and the law firm isnt. The law firm that isnt doing its job well is better in that it has a more solid, more dependable, and less stressful work ethic. You can always hire a good lawyer, but you can always find a bad lawyer and its tough to work with a bad lawyer.
The last time I checked, Law Firms are more like a small company that is good at its job. And those companies are the ones that really succeed.
Law Firms are like big departments. They have to operate in a very small scope of work. The work is divided between legal specialists and administrative professionals. Because the work is divided between different specialists, the company can always be on top. That makes it a very strong competitor. Even if you can hire the best legal specialists, the best administrative professional, and the best administrative specialist, you cant beat them one-on-one. And in today’s job market that isnt true.
While firms are like departments, they have their own rules and regulations. They have their own policies and procedures and they can be more aggressive about breaking all of them. This makes them companies.
So if you work for a law office, you should strive to be the best at what you do. You have to be able to make sure that the office and everything that you do is the best at.
The best at what you do means that you’ve got to understand the law and how it works and you’ve got to be able to handle your clients and your clients’ clients. Thats not easy for anyone.
The best at what you do means you know the law and you know what procedures to follow, but you also have to be able to handle your clients and your clients clients. Thats not easy for anyone.
