Steps towards building a successful legal practice:

Lawyers out there, especially those who have just started out will know what exactly this is about! Starting off out on your own isn’t easy, especially when it comes to law. So how do you tackle this new, challenging phase? How do you surpass all expectations, worries, doubts et al. to establish your name in this field? Read on to know more:

 

  • Chalk out your plan:
    When you start off on a journey unknown, it’s always better to have an idea in hand. You know you have the skills, the required specialization – but how are you going to get it across to people, to potential clients? That is what requires thought. You can use whichever medium you are comfortable with – if public speaking is your magic tool, use it. Look out for opportunities which will allow you to display your skills and talent and help you tap potential clientele. You could also write – blog posts on your website or any other relevant social media platform. Aggressive marketing is the backbone of a steady business clientele – so do it!

  • Word of mouth publicity:
    Initially, till you set yourself one, you are the one who has to do this for yourself! So whichever events you attend, make sure that you shrug off all your hesitance and go ahead and talk to people – about yourself, about your newest venture and about them too. This will help you gather a client base – not all of them will seek your help, but even if some of them do, your word of mouth publicity has been a success. Don’t leave any stone unturned and use every possible opportunity in hand to publicize yourself and your venture and wait patiently for the results.

 

  • Choose and use your staff carefully:
    Every lawyer has his own specialty – for example, may be a master of criminal law. Not that you won’t be able to fight out other cases, but you are at your best when it comes to criminal law. What you have to keep in mind is the fact that your firm has to be all-rounded. So while hiring, you have to hire lawyers with different specializations, to make your job easier. After you’ve chosen the right staff, as per your needs and requirements, you have to trust and assign them with responsibilities and tasks – after all, that’s how a firm works – with perfect coordination and teamwork.job-interview

  • Cut down on social media:
    Social media is the main culprit these days – while moderate, controlled usage of anything is perfect, the main issue is when it becomes an addiction. You have to keep know how to disconnect yourself from the virtual world which is faker than anything else.

 

  • Venture into nature:
    Instead of gluing yourself to any screen- laptop, phone, iPad – drop it all and go off into nature’s arms. Connecting with nature helps to calm your mind and makes you realize that there is a real, authentic world outside that fake virtual life too.

 

  • Hangout with great friends:
    The reason why I said great friends is because some friends are just pots of negativity! Steer clear from such friends, especially if you’re trying to gather yourself. Try to keep positive, lively and upbeat company – it influences your mood too!

Be yourself.

 

Give and take feedback:
You need to give timely feedback to the team you are leading. This will help them understand their strengths and areas where they can direct efforts to improve. Shower your team with praise when targets are achieved well within the given time span and let them know that their efforts are noticed. Similarly, you need to take feedback from your managers – this will help you improvise too. No one is perfect, but we can always work upon our flaws to make sure they don’t hinder your work.

 

Chart out and discuss:
There’s no point in charting out a plan if you aren’t going to communicate it to your team! So, whatever the strategy or goals or targets are – make it known to every member of your team. This will give them a sense of direction, and they will channelize their efforts in that direction. This will make achieving the targets easier.

 

Delegate work and responsibilities:
An efficient manager is one who knows well how to schedule and delegate responsibilities. Getting work done is, and a good manager has the knack to get work done. You need to know which jobs need your personal intervention and which can be delegated – this will help you ease off the workload that’s on your head.
