The Armstrong Watson Legal Sector Team will work with you to review and lead your finance and accounting function, particularly its output and how that output is used by your key decision makers and fee earners to improve their performance. As part of our FD service offering we provide the following services:
Assisted review of your accounting function and the output produced and how it is used in your firm’s strategy. This service is bespoke to your firm and your specific requirements.
We work with you to make recommendations on every facet of your accounting function including
Provision of financial director services and high level strategic support on an ongoing basis to fit your firms bespoke needs.
All law firms of all structures and sizes in all locations.
Your internal cashier function should not change, and will still be required for the day to day posting.
The outputs are as noted above. We can agree targets with you to measure our success.
£1,200 plus VAT and disbursements for an initial assessment meeting via video conference, to be credited against future fees should you decide to appoint us. All fees are agreed based upon a bespoke schedule of the pricing options produced following the assessment meeting.
We can build a solution that fits your business needs and budgets.
We engaged the Armstrong Watson legal sector team to provide outsourced FD services and to assist us through a period of transition following the departure of our previous in-house FD. Their knowledge of the issues and bespoke recommendations have helped to refocus our management thought process and implementation of our strategy. Armstrong Watson has refreshed the output of our accounting function and that has allowed our management team to focus attention where necessary. We use their user friendly KPI focused management information and this allows for a joined up approach with our strategy and informed management decisions. All in all, we are delighted with our decision to outsource our FD function and wish that we had done it long before.

During the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic it became apparent that the bookkeeping and management accounts were potentially going to be problematic logistically. Sharon was proactive in providing possible solutions in advance of our scheduled quarterly timetable and was available at several opportunities to test our preferred option of working remotely. Microsoft Teams proved to be invaluable in ensuring we could adapt to a rapidly changing working environment with relatively short notice. Armstrong Watson were instrumental in bringing about this change and ensuring, not only the work getting done on a timely basis but also, staff safety being prioritised.
