10 Key Numbers Every Law Firm Owner Must Know To Succeed

Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Time: 12pm EDT/ 9am PDT

Over the last nineteen years we have helped over 18,000 attorneys market and grow their business. We have studied best practices of business development in some of the fastest growing firms in the nation. During this time we have identified many of the key characteristics of highly successful bankruptcy law firms. One of the more consistent ones is that they track specific numbers and key indicators that give them instant insight into how their law firm is performing on a weekly and monthly basis.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are the numbers that make your law firm run.

By analyzing these critical metrics, Partners and Owners of law firms can easily determine whether they are on track to achieve their goals or if they need to retool and refocus their marketing and business development efforts.

In this fast paced webinar, nationally recognized law firm marketing expert Stephen Fairley will teach you:

  • How to easily identify the 10 key metrics your law firm needs to track and measure
  • How to set up a system to identify these numbers
  • CPL and CPC: the 2 most important numbers every attorney must know in order to succeed
  • How to avoid “paralysis by analysis”and being overwhelmed by too much data
  • Delegating roles and responsibility to your staff
  • Using software to track your KPIs

If numbers scare you or you tend to ignore them because you have a hard time making heads or tails of all the different data you see, then this webinar is a “can’t miss” event! If you’re a spreadsheet and data driven individual then you will love this webinar!
