First Impressions Last a Long Time: Is it Time to Review Your Legal Service Request Process?

Requests for legal services are sometimes thrown at the legal department as a mix of emails, texts, phone calls, and informal conversations. Trying to sort through such an assortment of “requests” would prove daunting under any circumstance. And all of this before the “real” legal work even begins. Another problem is when a person or department needs legal assistance, but doesn’t know where in the organization to go, or the best way to initiate the request. This is where problems begin for the legal department.

Something else that is frequently forgotten is the importance of forming a good, old-fashioned relationship between the legal service requestor and the legal service provider. For legal matters, the intake process is where the relationship often begins.

“Usually, the intake process will represent the first working relationship you have with your new client. Therefore, it is important that you make a very good first impression. A good first impression could mean the difference between a satisfied client and a soon-to-be disgruntled client. Creating a good first impression applies both to the style and the substance of the client intake process.”
