The good news: it can only get warmer from here. Welcome to Tuesday and your copy of The LAD.

The LAD has news and information giving you a 360 view of the legal services industry. The LAD is your complete source for articles, jobs, and blogs. The LAD - it's all about the BUSINESS of LAW.


The "P" Word

Thanks to Carolyn Elefant for her guest post by Eva Hibnick and Allen Rodriguez, co-founders of a law innovation agency, One 400. A worthy read that discusses the notion of 'Products' in legal services. In the hyper-competitive world of legal services, it is vital that firms identify profitable products to sell, build marketing strategies around those products, and tune their sales teams to sell those products.

If this all sounds very 'manufacturing', just look at the shirt industry. There you will find a whole range of products, from mass-produced products for Walmart and Target, mid-ranged products for consumers with more to spend, and bespoke shirt-makers who cater to those concerned more with quality of outcome than price. I think this is a fair analogy to the market for legal services.

Don't let the 'P' word dissuade you from thinking in terms of 'product'. Lots of other parts of your business (sales, marketing, process, service) will fall into place.

Read the article by Hibnick and Rodriguez.
