Time effective training for professional legal practices

Training by consultants who understand lawyers and legal firms

We have worked with a wide variety of staff members from the legal profession, as well as staff members from associated state and federal organisations who are part of the legal process.

Our general knowledge of the unique operating environment is very high. Derek Stockley has been involved with lawyers for over 30 years, see Maria Stockley.

We have worked with both professional and support staff, from junior to quite senior levels. We have worked with lawyers, paralegal staff members, administrative staff and support specialists e.g. information technology.

We specialise in the soft skill areas of communication, leadership, management, negotiation, trainer development, facilitation, employee selection and time management. We are aware of the types of specialist systems and procedures that operate in legal organisations.
