Creating a Revenue-Generating Client Feedback Program
With 75% of corporate counsel reporting legal spend is holding steady or increasing in 2017, the outlook should be clear skies for law firms. But not so fast! Recent studies show corporate counsel are paring low-performing firms and bringing more work in-house, saving bet-the-company transactions and litigation for outside counsel. And year over year, law firm clients say they aren’t getting the relationship and service they expect from their firms. It’s safe to say that competition for top quality work has rarely been fiercer.
What’s a law firm to do? Get closer to their clients! There’s no better time than the present to implement a well-designed client feedback program. When performed strategically, they can:
-Retain revenue from existing clients
-Cement relationships and loyalty, preventing client defection;
-Uncover problems that could lead to client dissatisfaction and departure;
-Find new roads to revenue with existing clients.
The best feedback programs combine 1:1 interaction with top clients and other feedback gathering tools. But the process is paramount. These interactions with clients must be carefully planned and orchestrated.
