A Communication Policy shared with your staff and partners is CRITICAL for your Law Firm should you wish to deliver excellent customer service and client satisfaction.
As you will see from results recently published in a mystery shopping exercise across over 100 Law firms including over 600 phone calls, there is a number of areas many law firms simply fall down on, as there is no structure or measurement in place as to what is expected. Many of these basics can be very simply and swiftly covered, and then positively promoted by your marketing team.
As a starter:
- Do you ask for the customer name? …..56% do not!
- Does the receptionist ask callers how they found out about the firm? …73% do not!
- Is there a policy to follow up inbound enquiries? …Less than 20% do!
Partners in your firm may benefit greatly from following a customer journey to actually gain the reality of what is happening in their firm.
