Is There a Growth Imperative?

In the current legal market, law firms need breadth and depth to serve clients, capture new market share and stay competitive. But, at the same time, firms risk over-capacity, diluted profitability, and sometimes the survival of the firm itself, if they make the wrong choices about growth. It’s a balancing act.

This 90-minute Altman Weil Webinar, Is There a Growth Imperative?, discusses good and bad reasons to grow your law firm, how to think strategically and systematically about growth, and how to develop an objective plan of action for your firm.

  • Geographic options in a saturated market
  • Alternatives to growth: Lawyers on call (but not on the payroll)
