Law firm strategic planning is vital. However, if even created, implementation fails to happen. It usually goes something like this: a law firm hires an expensive consultant or tries strategic planning on their own, creates a massive plan that covers every aspect of their business, the plan is nicely formatted and packaged, lawyers go back to their busy lives and the plan sits on a shelf. On the other hand, ESQuisite takes a different approach. We work with clients to determine the most important strategic planning issues facing their firm. We create practical goals which include the necessary strategy and tactics to reach those goals. Then we work directly with the client to implement the strategy and tactics to achieve the goals.
We do not overcomplicate things – the business of law should not be very complicated. Our strategic planning services include, but are not limited to the following:
- Growth plans
- Business development and marketing plans
- Practice group plans
- Industry group plans
- Competitive analysis
- Positioning and branding plans
