As well as organisations within the voluntary sector and those connected with legal professional associations, numerous private organisations offer help through consultancy services although this is usually to the firm as opposed to its staff. These services tend to be based around HR, practice management, business management, strategy, and marketing. It’s often thought that they tend only to be for larger firms.

advise smaller firms in all manner of practice management issues that range from acquiring and selling legal businesses, restructuring, business management, branding, and cash flow.
