Like any business, law firms can only thrive if their business is financially sustainable. However, as with the practice of law more generally, there is increasing pressure on small law firms to focus on marketing, client generation, and technology/productivity efficiencies to increase profitability. Yet small law firms often have unique barriers to addressing these key growth areas. "This is where Fundafi sees an opportunity to help small law firms position for growth," remarks Cheryl Kaufman, CEO of Alliance Legal Solutions (d/b/a Fundafi.com).
The United States has more than 250,000 law firms with less than ten employees, and according to a study conducted by the Legal Executive Institute, Thomson Reuters, 71% of these firms reported that their biggest challenges are acquiring new clients and spending an increasing amount of time and money on administrative tasks. To address these issues, small firms need to wisely deploy additional capital, a resource that is often difficult for small firms to access.
