Documenting Your Brilliance™

Coaching and Consultancy Packages to support the SRA Statement of
Solicitor Competence A, C & D.

Supporting In-house Lawyers to achieve their goals and be exceptional in the workplace.

  • Are you ready for the SRA Statement of Solicitor Competence regime?
  • Have you ever been surprised about a bill from your external providers?
  • Does your external law firm talk at you (or even about themselves) rather than talk to you or ask you what your needs are?
  • Have you been told by a law firm that they have the best team to support you – only to find that nothing gets done if your contact is away?
  • Have you set up a great relationship with your external contacts only to find that the people reporting to you and them don’t get on? And you are therefore constantly smoothing relationships.
  • Have you found yourself the ‘tennis ball’ between the business and the outside counsel who both talk a different language?
  • Have you experienced promises not being kept by your external law firms?

An open-ended coaching/consultancy support package is always available depending on your specific requirements/needs. From my experience working with lawyers to become exceptional, I have found that a modular structured approach can be highly effective in supporting you to deliver a first class legal service to your organisation with your external providers. This modular approach has also been aligned to the SRA Statement of Solicitor Competence. View more info on Competencies A - D here.
