LEGAL 
 
We can help any business work more efficiently, get things done, make money and present a credible, professional image to customers and clients, but we specialise in the world of law. When it comes to legal admin, Elaine has been there, done it and bought the t-shirt. Have a read of her guest blog on The Rich Lawyer about what she has learned over her 22 years of working with lawyers. 
 
Many law firms are embracing a more agile way of working and turning away from traditional ways of getting support. The days of one PA to one partner are pretty much a thing of the past. Technology means that staff don’t have to be in the office. It’s easy to access all the systems you need remotely and to maintain good communication without being in the same building. 
 
It’s not difficult to save lawyers tons of money. Think of your charge-out rate – that is what it is costing you to do your admin if you do it yourself. Why on earth would you not delegate to someone who is probably better or faster at it than you, who has worked at the highest level in legal admin support and who charges a fraction of what you do? Sometimes you can even delegate clients’ tasks and charge that time back to your client – it’s a no-brainer.

“We specialise in working with legal firms and solicitors, so I’m used to dealing with sensitive matters. If you have particularly sensitive information or your business has strict confidentiality requirements, then we’d be happy to sign a confidentiality agreement to give you complete peace of mind. We’ll even prepare the agreement for you if you like!”

Why Use Us? 

I have a proven track record of getting the job done and to a high standard in tiny, local firms, as well as in gigantic, multi-national organisations; not to mention as a self-employed business owner. 

What / How Much? 

Most of our clients like to purchase an agreed number of hours up-front each month. That can be as little as 10 but the more you buy, the lower the rate you can access.
