Michael and Courtney English: SOPs for Your Efficient Law Firm

In this episode, Steve Fretzin, Michael English, and Courtney English discuss:

  • Improving efficiency to improve your life and business.
  • Why SOPs are so important to your law firm and business.
  • Top challenges lawyers face in automating and scaling.
  • Writing out the SOPs for your law firm.

Key Takeaways:

  • SOPs (standard operating procedures) are the key to creating a streamlined law firm and will allow you to delegate appropriately the activities that you, as the lawyer, do not need to be doing.
  • Create training videos or modules to help train new employees rather than just having them shadow another employee and hoping for the best.
  • For law firms with flat fee pricing, SOPs can create efficiencies and allow for automations that will help you to give more dollars to your bottom line.
  • Automations save time for everyone, but you need to know what it is that is being done in order to standardize, automate, and delegate.

“SOPs create consistency and responsibilities within a law firm – everybody knows what their job entails at that point, so there’s no question as to the responsibilities that lay on everybody’s shoulders. ” —  Michael English
