Change is indeed something of a badge that we wear with honour at Michael Doherty Legal or more to the point, our ability to continually adapt to it.
As employment law and workplace relations matters are becoming increasingly more complex and often setting new precedents, the manner in which I deliver legal representation has also changed.
On equal billing with adaptability to change is problem solving, and in recent times this has included finding methods for cost effectively delivering services and successful outcomes.
The truth is, having 20 plus years’ experience in a highly specialised field sometimes just isn’t enough in light of some emerging cases.
It’s for this reason, I’ve significantly streamlined my approach to include collaborating with a network of specialist professionals, but only for as long as their expertise is required.
Put simply, I build teams specific to the needs of each case.
These teams can include solicitors, barristers and paralegals to accountants and crisis management PR consultants. Then, once the case concludes the team simply disperses.
We’re nimble, discrete, effective and importantly, we ensure close communication with our clients, and that includes direct access to me.
My role, in addition to providing legal counsel, is to coordinate and act upon specialist advice, to deliver outcomes.
While my clients benefit from the best minds for their case, it allows me to employ minimal full-time staff. We’ve also looked closely at simplifying our business model and condensed it to a clear 4-step framework.
That is, we Meet & Review; Recommend & Advise; Develop & Implement Strategy; and Complete & Follow Up. If this sounds simplistic, it is.
Our approach is to provide our clients clarity, support and highly specialised representation to achieve resolution as quickly as possible.
This rather straight-forward approach to what can be incredibly complex matters is designed to reduce operating costs which fee-wise, benefits our clients.
