Benchmarking services

The ability to compare the financial performance of your law firm with that of other firms within the Legal Sector, particularly against best practice within the sector, is a powerful and valuable tool that allows Armstrong Watson to improve the financial results of your business.

Armstrong Watson maintains a financial benchmarking database for the Legal Sector.  All of the data we hold is anonymous and is drawn from accountancy firms throughout the UK.

Our database allows us to produce bespoke reports for individual clients. Each report analyses the key performance indicators for that particular firm over a number of years and also compares those key performance indicators to the averages and best practice within the Legal Sector.

The result is a report with recommendations that enables your law firm to improve its financial performance.

Contact our Legal Sector Partner, Andy Poole, on 07828 857830 or andy.poole@armstrongwatson.co.uk to discuss how we can help you.
