Your clients are the foundation of your law firm, and they can heavily impact the profitability and performance of your business. So, how do you identify which clients aren’t right for you? And if you’ve already taken on a client who isn’t a great fit, how do you handle it?
Your law firm is not going to be profitable if every client is taking up twice as much time and energy as they should be. In addition to this, bad clients will distract you from focusing on higher-value clients who will bring you more referrals. According to Allison C. Shields Johs, you can avoid bad clients by following your gut instinct, enlisting the help of your associates and partners, and putting systems in place to communicate with all of your clients.
