Law Firm Compensation

Compensation systems play a significant role in influencing a law firm’s culture. The benchmarks a firm uses to determine compensation not only nod to the differences in the partners’ financial rewards and they also signal to a partner their value to the firm.

Every system should be unique to the strategic vision of your law firm.

Budgeting & Cash Flow Forecasting

A budget is a roadmap to follow and can help you and your firm meet your goals each year. A budget should be a critical piece of financial information prepared and monitored to ensure that partners maximize their profitability.

Cash flow forecasting is a mechanism to ensure that the law firm knows what is happening today, next week, and next month. Many cash flow projections are completed on a rolling 12-month basis.

The five most common internal controls are segregation of duties, restricted access to financial systems, periodic reconciliations by another party, double-entry accounting systems and process standardization and approval processes.

Do you have control over your expenses or do you have a top-line issue? A complete in-depth analysis of any or all of these factors will highlight the areas for improvement.
