In our experience it is the fee earners' day to day activities that have the biggest impact on the profits and cash flow of law firms. If they do not understand the financial implications of their day to day decisions, then the financial success of law firms will be held back. This three hour course provides an understanding of finance which then allows specific actions and improvements to be discussed, and importantly bought into by all delegates.
Often these courses are used as a launch pad for new financial initiatives sought by the firm which help to obtain the buy in from all staff. In other instances they lead onto the creation of a business improvement report based upon the points discussed in the course.

Andy Poole and two Armstrong Watson colleagues led a day of Law South’s May 2021 conference, “Humanising the Business of Law”. This was online due to Covid but the delivery and the pace of the day engaged everyone successfully. Andy’s presentation was titled “Boosting profits and cash” and delivered to predominantly law firm partner audience of 60 delegates. Allowing for the usual range of perspectives in such a group, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive with 94% giving good or excellent for expectations being met. A typical comment was “Very clear, things we can see we do, as well as things we don't do quite so well!” The day gave a greater understanding of law firm finances, comfort in discussing financial matters with clients, improving client service and satisfaction and a bespoke set of actions to take away. We have subsequently used Andy for training courses for member firms and are happy to recommend him to others.
Mark Day, Chief Executive Officer, Law South Group Limited
We have worked with Andy over a number of years and recently he has presented a half day on financial training for partners and new partners. This has been very well received. We find Andy extremely easy to work with, very accommodating of any particular needs we may have, and his knowledge of this topic is outstanding. One quote from a delegate having attended this training was “Very good course - highly recommend to those wanting to have a better understanding of a law firm's financial performance and potential ways to improve it.
Sara Palmer, Learning and Development Manager, Law South Group Limited
The training from Andy Poole is always engaging, informative and practical. He's an expert who really understands and relates to lawyers.
