Services can be provided remotely or in person.
Regardless of your need Lawganised "has a tool for that".
Our services below are but the tip of the iceberg. Lawganised exists to provide tailored solutions based on your needs. So whatever you need, get in contact with us today to discuss how we can get your firm 'Lawganised'.
Comprehensive Firmwide Review
Our comprehensive firmwide review leaves no stone unturned exploring the operational performance and effectiveness of your practice. After a detailed information gathering process, we will comprehensively assess the effectiveness of your practice against published legal industry benchmarks and our own performance metrics. Your firm will also be assessed against the Lawganised '10 tips' : 10 critical things a legal practice must have in place to thrive in today's market.
The team from Lawganised will also interview all your staff, including fee earning and support staff, to identify the hidden gems that will unleash excellence in your practice: the tips from your own people. You will be provided with a comprehensive report of findings and recommendations on what your firm must implement in order to thrive and achieve your goals.
Personal Training Service
Just like having your own personal trainer at the gym, the Lawganised Personal Training Service assists firms set goals and develop the right structures, processes, and accountability to achieve them.
Your own Personal Trainer will work with you to establish your firm's goals, assist in developing your strategic plan/project plans and 'Why?' statement. Your PT will then work with you during regular sessions to track performance, work with staff on individual KPIs and provide you with a suite of reports to understand your firm's progress. And at all times you will have a personal confidante beside you there for unlimited confidential email and telephone consults, your own sounding board, and a trusted advisor.
It can feel very lonely as a Principal of a law firm. Lawganised understands this and our consultants have in excess of 60 years of experience navigating the trials and tribulations just like you. So when you need to, lean on your very own Lawganised Personal Trainer.
Trust is the cornerstone of a high-performing team. Similarly, a lack of trust in any team provides a one way street to team dysfunction.
The Lawganised Trust Workshop is a half-day workshop aimed at building awareness and understanding of all members of the team, of all other members of the team – outside the practise of law. The workshop explores personality types and develops your team members' skills in working with people with different personality types, and also explores the sources of dysfunctions in teams and why trust is the cornerstone to building a high performing team.
If you are seeking lasting change in your firm, in processes, systems, or whatever, don't launch into spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on some whiz-bang software or make piecemeal changes in your quest to 'do law differently'..... start with building and enhancing trust in your team.
Change is about people, and trusting teams embrace and absorb change better. Build/Enhance trust first, then invest in your change projects. The Lawganised Trust Workshop is a great place to start.
