Finance for Lawyers

Finance for lawyers – to help you deliver on your commitments about your lawyers’ commercial awareness to your clients

We know that not all lawyers are comfortable with the numbers. We also know how highly your clients rate lawyers who understand the finances and can advise in a commercial context. That’s why we’ve developed a series of financial skills training courses that help to fill any knowledge gaps. 

We offer a wide range of courses to improve your lawyers’ commercial awareness. Delivered by accountants who really understand financial information and how law firms work, our courses can be tailored for all levels.

And that means lawyers who: 

  • understand what makes a client’s business tick;
  • grasp the finer points of a P&L and a balance sheet; and
  • can talk knowledgably about the broader economics affecting a client sector.

The result? Improved client satisfaction levels and a clear competitive edge for your firm. In short, we can help you to develop a team of lawyers with outstanding financial and commercial capabilities.

What about other staff?

We offer training for everyone from partners to paralegals, apprentices to business support staff. Take a look at the course outlines and get in touch. If you don’t see precisely what you want, we’ll be happy to develop something tailored for your firm. Just ask.
