Jenny Jones, an accountant with years of experience in pricing legal services at City giant Linklaters, has joined law firm consultancy Jomati.

Ms Jones spent seven years at Linklaters, where she was global business manager and group reporting manager, and arrives at Jomati, a Legal Futures Associate, with experience in pricing strategies, as well as handling complex law firm economic issues, such as managing gross margin.

More recently she has been working as an independent consultant to international and domestic law firms. She has project managed an LLP conversion, and the development and roll-out of a pricing and budgeting tool to all lawyers in an international firm, work which won a commendation at the FT Innovative Lawyer Awards 2007.

Jomati principal Tony Williams, the former managing partner of Clifford Chance, said: “The addition of such an experienced pricing expert when many law firms are grappling with the growing client demand for alternative fee arrangements, such as fixed fees and success-based fees, is very timely.”

It is the latest stage in Jomati’s growth strategy, which last year saw the hire of well-known legal journalist Richard Tromans as head of research. Mr Tromas is spearheading a series of reports into key law firm issues, the first of which was published recently on globalisation after the economic crisis.

Going social

Derek Fitzpatrick Clio

Legal professionals, as communicators, serve a crucial role in social conversations, but have not been quick to adopt a strong presence on social media. Many lawyers are reluctant to start a social media profile as they don’t foresee any benefits to having one. The bottom line is that lawyers won’t get clients from social media if they are not using it. With 62% of adults having a Facebook account, your clients – and competitors – are using social media and you can no longer afford to treat it as an afterthought in the digital age.
