About Practice Management

There’s more to running a law firm than being good at law. If you want to succeed in today’s tough legal landscape you have to manage your business effectively. That means strategic planning, business planning, financial management, risk management, talent management, operational management, knowledge management, HR, IT, tax, pensions, business development, health & safety, learning & development and facilities.

Human resources (HR)

An excellent resource for firms with or without a dedicated HR department. The former can use this topic as a reference resource, the latter to get to grips with why all these different aspects of HR are important, what they actually need to do and how to do it. The subtopics combine relevant employment law content with practical HR guidance written especially for law firms.

Health & safety (H&S)

Every business has to make sure they are compliant with H&S legislation. It is an area law firms may choose to outsource/employ an external consultant to help them with due to a lack of knowledge about what they should be doing and how to do it. We can demystify these requirements and help them to do what they need to do themselves.
