For Lawyers

Welcome

The Legal Profession is facing some of the most dramatic changes that it has encountered in decades.

Steve Cornforth Consultancy is dedicated to helping lawyers and law firms to assist others.

This is by focussing on sound business planning, risk management and training. Lawyers want to achieve the best results for their clients. This is why most of us went into the law in the first place. Through the consultancy, my aim is to take on the burden of management, enabling the lawyers to do what they do best - run cases and earn profits.

Full details of the advice and help I offer are set out in the Services and Training sections of this site.

Testimonials

I have known and worked with Steve for many years. He has an excellent grasp of the issues affecting the profession, and a track record of responding to and dealing with these.

However I have gotten to know Steve personally in recent years and can say that his down to earth, approachable manner, sense of humour, integrity, intelligence and not forgetting his great photography skills coupled with experience, skills and those personal qualities make me have no hesitation in recommending Steve. I do this knowing that in a crowded market Steve stands out  David Wafer, McIver Scott Recruiting
