As a law firm, managing your finances is critical in maximizing profitability, optimizing productivity, and delivering value to clients. But, many firms lack the appropriate methods to manage statements and work-in-progress (WIP), ultimately inhibiting effective decision-making. So, what strategies can you leverage to increase revenue and streamline operations for your law firm?
Having worked with 70 law firms to organize their finances, Nir Yerushalmi knows how to manage law partners and solve firms’ most pressing financial challenges. He says that to make informed financial decisions, you should first evaluate four KPIs (key performance indicators): revenue per lawyer, income per hour, hours per associate, and revenue per potential revenue. Analyzing these metrics allows you to gauge your profit margin and establish a clear budget. With a wealth of leadership skills, Nir emphasizes the importance of compiling monthly reports to inform partners and associates of important KPIs, ideal budgets, expenses, and profitability rates.
