As an attorney, you have probably worked with many different clients. Each client is different and figuring out their specific preferences can sometimes lead to different client disputes.
They might want to communicate differently, they could want to pay a certain way, some of them like their coffee black, and others may take it with creme. There is one thing that is the same no matter who the client is — no client is happy when you or your law firm misses a deadline.
While some client disputes are difficult to avoid, disputes associated with missed deadlines leave you with no one to blame but yourself. Just because clients would consider missing a deadline unacceptable,doesn’t mean that it’s easy for you to stay on top of your firm’s deadlines. With multiple clients and multiple matters, managing all of your deadlines can be a challenge if you don’t have the right systems in place.
Here are some ways your firm can stop missing deadlines and reduce the number unnecessary client disputes associated with the mismanagement of your calendar.
