Enabling strategic momentum to our client community by practicing with fierce elegance.
The Lynch Law Firm’s objectives are entirely focused on using legal standards and industry best practices to provide accurate and successful business formation, employment law, workplace discrimination matters, contracts, and employment litigation avoidance.
The Lynch Law Firm’s resources are primarily in its people. Although we have a fully functioning and dedicated office environment, it is modest and reflective of our individual and client needs for nimbleness. The firm dedicates more to the technological and communications needs of our workforce than to unnecessary aesthetics or square footage. As an organization that operates in a particularly lean fashion within a conservative and highly regulated industry, we are financially stable.
The organization is particularly stable in that the relevant employees are at the peak of their careers and all business generating efforts, such as responding to RFQs or marketing, are aligned with the documented interests of those staff members. The professional members of our team are annually asked to report the types of work they desire to focus on as well as any educational opportunities in those arenas and plans for obtaining more of that type of work. Ms. Lynch, Dr. Lee, and Ms. Word all report a desire to continue their focus on workplace investigations.
Ms. Lynch is ultimately responsible for all work produced by the Lynch Law Firm and will be involved in each and every client contract. As needed, The Lynch Law Firm can reallocate current workloads and possibly hiring of additional staff based on the volume of work provided to clients. Those growth strategies are even now mapped out as are the internal and external training opportunities that will be afforded to reallocated or additional staff.
