This report analyses why the firm loses 35% of new clients within the first two weeks of receiving instructions. The research was conducted in May and June 2019 and includes statistical data gathered from various sources. The research was conducted by a cross-party team of fee earners, secretaries and support staff headed up by Fred Smith.
The aim was to identify current bottlenecks in the process, what was causing them and how they could be fixed.
The main recommendations of the report are:
standardised email signatures for all employees, containing direct contact information
a review of all standard letters currently sent to clients

a review of our current mobile phone provider and a potential move to a new provider
The full details of these recommendations can be found below. Should the recommendations be accepted, initial roll-out can begin within two weeks.
