To build a more efficient, profitable & productive practice, you need to master a whole new skill set

But here's the problem...

  • You're so busy you don't have time to think, let alone plan for the future


  • The changes you've made before haven't stuck


  • Nobody has given you a plan

  • You can't afford to waste time or energy on something that might not work


  • You can't afford consultants or business coaches


  • You have no idea where to start

We've got good news for you!


Becoming more profitable and less stressed

isn't as hard as you think


You probably already know that increasing your efficiency is the single greatest driver of law firm profitability.


But did you know that 80% of lawyers who want to become more efficient will never do anything about it?


Why? Because they're just too busy.  


Making positive changes in your practice will take some effort. But with a step-by-step framework and guidance from experienced lawyers who understand the business and practice of law, you can do it.


Let us show you how.


You need a clear path...and support along the way

The Practice Accelerator Course provides you with: 


  • A plan—a roadmap you can follow—that gives you step-by-step strategies and guidance.
  • A toolkit of practical skills you can use right away.
  • The exact same strategies being used by some of North America's most successful law firms.

A 5-step formula for identifying and eliminating the waste in your law practice, so you can increase revenue, cut costs, and deliver even better service to your clients...without spending any more time at the office.


Efficiency is the key...but implementation is the challenge

We know how hard it can be to implement changes. We're attorneys with decades of experience practicing law in North America, Europe, and the UK.

We're also the exclusive Global Advisors (Legal Process Improvement) to the International Institute of Legal Project Management.

Practice Accelerator is not just a training course,

it's an implementation program

It's not about theory or fancy belts. Everything you'll learn comes directly from our personal experience as attorneys and what has worked in the field with the law firms and legal departments we've worked with across North America.

You'll learn our step-by-step framework for building a more profitable and productive law practice. This is the same framework we've taught to thousands of legal professionals. 


The Practice Accelerator Course is an 8-week program

(but you get immediate access to everything)

It's made up of 6 modules, including videos, guided activities, workbooks, worksheets, and other downloads, supported by live-online coaching.

You'll get access to all modules at once, but we recommend you give yourself at least 8 weeks to complete the course and implement what you're learning. 

Schedule your 1:1 or  group coaching sessions as you need them.

Here's how it breaks down.

Here's your plan:


1. Enroll in the Practice Accelerator Course

Get immediate access to the first module and mark your calendar for the next coaching session.

2. Watch the videos and complete assignments at your own pace

Watch the videos, download the transcripts, or listen to the audio. Learn at your own pace, in the way that suits you best.

3. Apply what you learn immediately, to create a more productive and profitable practice

You'll finish the program with a powerful set of skills AND at least one improved process. Then you'll be able to apply what you've learned to continue improving other legal and business processes across your practice.

The terms

The Practice Accelerator course gave me a very clear approach to process improvement. I have often been guilty of jumping in headfirst believing that I know how something can be done more efficiently, without going through a process to ensure the problem is fully defined and that the right inefficiencies are being addressed. The Practice Accelerator framework provides a good system for ensuring a careful and thoughtful approach that targets the right issues for improvement.
