The fresh start of the New Year provides a perfect opportunity to review a law firm’s practices and implement new policies and procedures to enhance cash flow and profitability. Oftentimes, simply improving the level and quality of communications with clients can have a dramatic impact on a law firm’s cash flow. In many instances, positive results can be achieved by fine tuning the firm’s intake procedures, retainer agreements, client management, and billing practices.
