There are lawyers, and then there are businesses that sell legal services…

But why does that distinction matter?

Because a lot of firms who forget about the business side fall short on business processes.

Being a lawyer is certainly more stressful if you’re in a law firm that doesn’t run efficiently…

Being the greatest attorney in the world doesn’t mean that you can run a firm successfully because business is an entirely different skillset on its own.

You owe it to your clients and employees to make sure things are operational and smooth…

So what steps can you take to keep the business side of your firm running smoothly?

In this week’s podcast, Kevin Brick discusses how to succeed in marketing areas that other firms seem to have less fortune in and where attorneys benefit from focusing most of their efforts.
