Previous achievements

  • Lead generation – self-generated 200 new cases for a High Street law firm in 8 months, average value of £500 per case. I set up a lead capture system, the source of the enquiry, the method, the matter type. Our conversion rate is 37%. I report daily and follow up with the teams if enquiries have not been progressed.
  • Wrote directory submissions for Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners managing to get listings in PI and Family.
  • Gained grants from NBV and Business Lincolnshire to upgrade the IT system, telephony and put two screens on each person’s desk. This boosted morale and improved productivity and reduced wasted down time.
  • Wrote the business plan for the health team of a Top 50 national law firm to £20m revenue by year end 2017/18, doubling the turnover in five years.
  • Identified 9 areas of focus. 80% of turnover was coming from three national accounts, the independent healthcare sector and Mental Capacity/ Court of Protection. Supported the legal teams to write up and deliver their business plans in this area. Set up regular communication meetings with regional offices which also follow the same commercial model, thereby increasing cross-selling opportunities, breaking down silos and giving a push to lateral hires.
  • Set up two tier governance structure (secretariat) which brought accountability and oversight.
  • Wrote the technical brief, wireframe and content for the health portal.  This garnered 2700 unique visitors a month, generated leads and acted as a visual focal point for content for the in-house teams.
  • Bid co-ordinating and pricing. Changed the language the teams were using in response to tenders from a long list of features and “we” to thinking about the client and spelling out the benefit. This is not yet perfect but improved the win rate. Developed an innovative fixed fee pricing option for a hospital trust with a fair usage policy meaning the client has assurance on legal spend and that the account can be run profitably.
