Tromans Consulting helps legal businesses better understand how to tackle the challenges of innovation and the use of new technologies that are reshaping the market.

This offering has been developed because innovation is a business and strategic issue on the same level as broader management challenges, such as business expansion and improving your market position.

Tromans Consulting, which has focused for several years on the strategic needs of law firms, therefore now helps management teams with the following areas:

 -     Where to invest time, money and resources in innovation projects.

-      Understanding your market position and competitive advantages in relation to innovation and the use of technology. 

-      Benefits and challenges of different approaches to innovation and legal services delivery. 

-      Understanding the impact and benefits of AI and automation - as this technology clearly will change how you operate.

-      Internal governance and the development of new teams/departments that support innovation. 

-      Idea development and triage of innovation needs.

- And, developing an innovation strategy that is integral to your wider business plan.

Tromans Consulting also provides consulting services dedicated to wider strategic challenges faced by law firm management teams. These primarily cover two areas:

- Merger candidate analysis

- International network strategy.

Merger candidate analysis helps law firms better understand 'what is out there' and which firms may be a good fit to meet your strategic needs. 

International network strategy advice covers the central challenges that all referral networks face in keeping pace with the global legal market's ever-changing needs and the development of strategic plans for management teams.
