Although firms welcome growth, partners are often perplexed about how they have to change the firm, the staff and themselves in order to cope with a larger firm or a changing market. In these rapidly changing times, many firms find that they know that they have to change – to adapt to declining markets, to generate new income streams, to move to a new business model – but they don’t know what to do or how to do it in a structured way that continues to allow time for them to pursue their fee-earning responsibility.

Analysing what is working (and what needs to change), setting new goals for further growth and development and charting out a course for both strategic development and dealing with operational matters is an area where I assist many clients.
