Law firms are busy managing lots of cases. And, it’s easy for a handful of them to get lost in the shuffle, to fall through the cracks.
And, that’s when attorneys get into trouble. And, not just ethics trouble. A missed deadline or submission is a huge problem, obviously; but, it’s also not great that your cases are just languishing.
Law firms that stagnate are caused by cases that don’t move. And, there’s a significant penalty for that type of thing = you can’t make money on cases that don’t close.
This is why it’s hyper-important for law firms to make sure that each cases gains forward momentum.
How do you do that?
Well, it’s pretty simple: there just needs to be a next step, or a next task, on each case, at all times.
That’s one of the reasons why law firms that focus on workflows, with tasks attached to specific timekeepers, are so successful.
That process keeps thing moving.
