The legal service market faces the same changes and challenges as other ecosystems. There is an increasing need to meet tomorrow’s demands rather than to keep pushing yesterday’s supply. Professional services must remain commercially-minded and pursue a sound business strategy.
SSQ helps stakeholders in the legal service sector, in both private practice and client organizations, to be grounded in pivotal strategic elements, while identifying resources to navigate a business case and execute the strategy by connecting with and marshalling resources. This may take the form of a performance analysis of a practice across client sectors and markets, or a comprehensive calibration of a legal department’s roadmap to make a greater impact in the enterprise’s value creation, followed by meaningful changes in its existing business structures, operations and people.
SSQ advises law firms on strategy to complement organic growth. We broker law firm mergers/alliances (including compliance with local regulatory requirements), acquire law boutiques, establish new practices, expand geographical/practice coverage, and counsel management on key decisions and changes.
