Osprey Approach launches Empowering Law Firm Leaders series with Simon McCrum’s priorities to drive law firms’ profitability

Amy Bruce, Head of Marketing at Osprey Approach

Osprey Approach is delighted to announce that the first in a series of expert interviews has launched today as part of the Empowering Law Firm Leaders series. Episode one is in conversation with Simon McCrum, former managing partner of the UK’s fastest growing law firm, which is now available to watch and listen for free.

With decades of legal experience, Simon, owner of McCrum Management Consultancy and author of The Perfect Legal Business, met with Osprey’s head of marketing, Amy Bruce, to share his insights and expertise to help law firms improve cashflow, make more money per case, and outperform their peers on service quality.

In the conversation, Simon outlines:

  • How to stand out from your peers
  • Best practices on pricing models
  • How to run a high-performing team
  • How to improve cashflow

Simon shares his non-negotiables which today’s modern law firms need to adopt, as well as four priorities for honing law firms’ competitive advantage, enabling them to exceed client expectations, charge their true value and empower employees with aligned values.

Simon comments: – “History is littered with the perfect firm of solicitors that didn’t quite make it. The perfect firm of solicitors wasn’t about cashflow: it was about reputation. Billing targets are too low and it’s just not enough anymore. There needs to be a completely new approach to business efficiency to turn the passion and efforts of lawyers into cash.”

Osprey’s Empowering Law Firm Leaders interview series follows the success of its ‘Build Better Habits’ webinars, and will take a critical look at the key topics that will empower leaders and teams to help make running a law firm easier.

Over the coming weeks, Amy will be joined by other guests including Shaun Jardine, managing director at Big Yellow Penguin, Amy Bell, owner of Teal Compliance, and Simon Tupman, best-selling author and management consultant.

Amy adds: – “What a brilliant start to our Empowering Law Firm Leaders interview series. Simon’s insightful and candid advice can help law firms to build high-performing teams that deliver quality client service and maximise the profit and cash flow from every case. It really is a “must listen” for any current or aspiring law firm leaders.”

The first interview in the series with Simon McCrum is available to watch now. Law firm leaders can glean key advice and guidance on honing their firm’s competitive advantage and improving cashflow. They will also hear Simon’s exclusive advice to all SME law firms that, if not addressed immediately, could have a detrimental impact on firms’ future success.
