We see the same thing in 1-3 principal sized firms throughout Australia. The Top 8 issues that continually impact on legal firms’ profitability and cash flow are:

  1. Poor client engagement
  2. Discretionary pricing and billing policies
  3. Lack of cash flow management systems
  4. Too much labour cost for the revenue earned
  5. High principal productivity and low fee earner productivity
  6. No structured plan
  7. No accountability
  8. No structured time out by the principals to regularly plan and review progress

The profit and cash flow pressure is rarely caused by lack of work. In fact, most firms say that they are too busy, but just can’t grow profit and cash. Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. To improve profit and cash flow in your firm you need to change the structure of the underlying stems to produce behaviours in your firm that are conducive to achieving profit and cash flow growth outcomes.
