trainee 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 be offered a role at the firm on qualifying then you’ve got to prove yourself to be a) technically good at ‘the law’ and b) show promise to build a client ‘following’
  • AND then nurture it!

what’s on your mind?

As a trainee solicitor maybe you’re thinking the future of the legal profession or your furture prospects in it are not looking too rosy right now?  Maybe you’ve been asked to defer the start of your law training contract? Or perhaps you’re concerned about whether you’re going to be ‘kept on’? Are you concerned about the repayment of your student loan and/or financial prospects? Maybe you’re already thinking ‘this isn’t what I expected or what I signed up for?’

So …

  • How do you see your legal career progressing this decade?
  • Have you been tasked to help your superiors get more work in but you’re not sure how?
  • Do you feel ‘stuck’ right now, void of options and direction?
  • Not sure if a career in ‘the law’ is something that you want, or will even be offered?
  • Would you like more legal career (or alternative legal career) options?
  • Do you want some transferrable skills to add to your bow?
  • Would you like control over your next step, whatever that may be (in or out of the 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 developing 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 build a potential client and referral network from a standing start, generate a handsome quantity and quality of legal sales leads and instructions within a few short months, and all 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).

trainee solicitors I can help you:

  • acquire more strings to your bow (that may help you be ‘kept on’)
  • 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 trainee solicitors blog posts.
