assistant solicitors

The dawning of this new decade will inevitably bring unprecedented challenges, the likes of which our professional services career has not previously witnessed, let alone equipped us to manage.

you don’t need me to tell you:

  • that the transformation of the way in which the world of legal business operates is now under way
  • gone are the halcyon days when clients simply walked through the door
  • that if you want to progress to associate level and beyond you’ve got to prove yourself by getting out and winning more new business.
  • AND then nurture it!

what’s on your mind?

As an assistant solicitor are you one of the many lawyers right now working a five day week but getting paid for four? Has your salary been reduced and/or frozen? Have you retrained and are now working in an area of law as a stop-gap with a hope to return to your chosen field? Maybe you’re thinking ‘this isn’t what I expected or what I signed up for?’

Even if you’ve been blessed and are ‘one of the lucky ones’ who managed to escape all of the above …

  • How do you see your legal career progressing this decade?
  • Have you been tasked with getting more work in but you’re not sure how?
  • Do you feel ‘stuck’ right now, void of options and direction?
  • Not sure whether to sit tight or jump ship?
  • Not sure if further down the road becoming a partner is too risky, too distant or even something that you want?
  • Would you like more legal career (or alternative legal career) options?
  • Do you want more transferrable skills to add to your bow?
  • Would you like control over your next step, whatever that may be (in or out of the legal profession)?

a secret

I’d like to share with you a secret that will benefit you … if you want it …

I know how you, whether you see yourself as a ‘front of house’ lawyer or ‘back room’ kind of lawyer, can make that next step (whatever you choose it to be) by helping you learn the ‘soft skills’ that will help you answer all of the above.

Probably of most importance, I can help you generate a handsome quantity and quality of legal sales leads and instructions within a few short months whilst helping you grow professionally and personally.

I did it, you could too!

During the recession 2009 I managed to generate and refer £562,000 of legal sales as a trainee solicitor and newly qualified solicitor (non-practising).

assistant solicitor: I can help you …

  • acquire more strings to your bow
  • grow your network and generate impressive legal sales generation, referrals and instructions
  • build ensuring, sustainable and viable relationships of value (in business and in life)
  • make your superiors look good (they like that)
  • take control of the direction of your legal career (or alternative legal career)
  • feel confident, inspired, motivated and to find your passion again!

interested in knowing how?

I can share with you the 10 fundamental key elements to getting more clients, sales, referrals, income, value, growth and success – the blueprint sales development ROAR model.

There are a number of ways in which I do this. Check out the Lawyers Ecademy and assistant solicitors blog posts.

The ‘soft skills’ that give you the ability to generate work, build and leverage solid relationships, market and ‘soft sell’ will stand you in good stead whatever the future holds and wherever you decide to take your career.
