A legal strategy is an important element of any law firm. Having a general philosophy and mission for a firm allows firms to differentiate themselves and shows that the firm has put thought into what they want to be, and more importantly, how they plan to effectively fight for their clients. Knowing what legal strategy your firm will endeavor to have is important when they represent you.
What is a Legal Strategy?
All (good) law firms have one main goal- to provide their clients with the justice they deserve in an efficient and non-stressful manner. In meeting this goal, certain practical elements must be taken into account. However, some practical elements must be taken into account.
1. Legal Research and Legal Writing
A lawyer’s bread and butter, a lawyer must always have a writing plan and a research plan when finding and creating answers and progress for clients. This takes up most of a lawyer’s time, but generally is not too hard for a lawyer to handle. After all, a lawyer is trained how to do this in law school. Still, a plan is needed.
2. The Existence of Multiple Cases
Law firms generally take on multiple cases. Due to this, they must prioritize the cases they do have, and manage time wisely so that each and every client gets the most satisfactory outcome possible.
3. The Limitation of Time
Unfortunately, law firms also exist on the same timeline as everyone else. In theory, one could work on a legal case forever, improving and improving and improving all possible legal strategies. This is simply not possible. The good news is that it is not possible for the other side either, so the real requirement hear is knowing what amount of time is necessary to get the right outcome in the case.
4. The Limitation of Money
Law firms are businesses, but worse, they need money to function. Court filings, staff filings, and other research cost money. It is necessary for firms to keep track of their money and spend it wisely.
5. Opposing Council
Many plaintiff’s lawyers may wish they did not have to deal with opposing council, but they exist nonetheless. Knowing how to communicate, negotiate, and work with opposing council them will be important to a lawyer’s case.
A legal strategy takes all of these factors into account when planning for how to attack a client’ case and do it efficiently and practically. How a law firm handles their limited money, time, and legal research and client representation requires some forethought. All law firms should have some sort of legal strategy.
