Preparation of financial forecasts for a law firm

Our Legal Sector specialists will prepare your bespoke fianancial forecast using our own detailed forecasting model based upon utilisation and recovery levels of specific fee earners at specific times of the year; and debtor days and WIP days of departments.

This allows a more scientific approach to be taken in determining fee income and cash collection levels. It also allows an assessment of recoverable WIP to be made on a monthly basis, something that law firms should be monitoring and the banks are certainly interested in.

We prepare financial forecasts to help law firms with:

  • Raising finance
  • Setting targets and improving performance
  • Business planning and control
  • Lexcel
  • Submission to the SRA with applications to convert to a limited company or LLP or ABS.
Contact our Legal Sector Partner, Andy Poole, on 07828 857830 or andy.poole@armstrongwatson.co.uk to discuss how we can help you.
