Clients today are increasingly more sophisticated: they have exacting standards, practical understanding of the legal services they need, and unprecedented in-house skills. They do not want mysterious magical support; they want collaboration and collective understanding.
This development is good for all of us in the industry. It encourages collaboration and creativity, actively raising the bar for a legal team’s performance. But to achieve these requirements is no easy task. Increasing a firm’s skills in fields like eDiscovery, which are ripe for innovation, frequently falls primarily on litigation support teams.
Gulfstream Legal supports these teams by utilizing our client service approach, creating targeted technology solutions, and producing outcomes that are genuinely extraordinary. To provide superior client service, we focus on key factors such as identifying relevant internal and external clients, using effective communication strategies, and anticipating requirements rather than only responding to requests.
Serving Customers, Partners, and Internal Teams
At Gulfstream, we believe partners, internal clients and external clients need the same respect and focus. Our objective is to give all three outstanding service that enables them to realize their objectives.
Internal clients frequently experience a hierarchy where they feel like they are at the bottom. It’s crucial to recognize that eDiscovery and the integration of technology into legal services have democratized both the internal culture and the way that companies produce legal outcomes. Internal clients are not just any coworkers and it’s important to provide them with excellent client service as well. By doing this, we fulfill a crucial business need at Gulfstream and demonstrate our appreciation for their contribution to the company’s success.
With internal clients being provided their best service options, we believe external clients are equally responsible for providing good representation. You represent your company each time you work with your end client. We are consummate professionals and respect our relationships with clients and expect the same in turn from external clients.
It is important that our partners mutually benefit from the relationship. We make sure they know what we’re doing and give them details of how they fit into our plans. It helps elevate them and makes projects more collaborative and effective. Sharing full details of a project and bringing partners into a position where they can advise on potential strategies also empowers partners and helps us deliver the best possible outcome.
While maintaining healthy connections inside and out of one’s organization is crucial, the partners, attorneys, IT staff, analysts, project managers, vendors, software manufacturers, and paralegals we support, who provide legal and technology guidance to are all our clients. Remembering who Gulfstream’s internal clients are is just as critical as the external ones. Always think about what your clients and partners truly need, and you might find it’s different than what they’re asking for.
Keeping expectations and communications truly clear
Better results are the “why” that supports outstanding customer care; effective communication is the “how”. That entails having rational conversations with clients as well as outlining clear and reasonable expectations.
The guidelines? Always act with decency and professionalism. In this environment, people may be unpleasant and difficult to work with—I’m sure everyone here has tales. But in all circumstances, a few fundamental strategies will promote excellent communication.
These strategies include remaining composed (and, if necessary, giving yourself time to do so before responding to a controversial email), having peers check your emails for tone before sending them, and developing the practice of not taking things personally.
It’s not about you; it’s about solving a problem, finishing a task, and moving on. Utilize a development mentality and see these obstacles as chances to learn. Even if they don’t go well, it’s a chance to learn how to improve and develop expertise.
Effective communication practices are more important today, especially when it comes to expenses. Instead of having a difficult talk after a client has gotten a bill and is feeling sticker shock, it is far simpler to have a difficult chat about a price. Teams providing litigation assistance should be open and honest with clients on project expenses and changes at every step.
Exceeding expectations – and beyond
Naturally, when we can wow our clients, the best customer service experiences become known.
Before we can reach the “wow” moments, we first work to understand what you need to gain from the engagement and how we can apply our expertise to make that happen. We have open and honest discussions with clients about a project’s eventual aim and how it may alter depending on the specifics of the situation.
Armed with this information, we plan strategies to not only meet a client’s expectations but go beyond them in terms of how quickly and successfully we can accomplish your final goals. Over the course of a project, we continually check in and collaborate with members of the case team to make the most of new insights and generate useful ideas to keep things on course.
Our clients count on us to foresee their wants, problems, and inquiries. Use your instincts and knowledge while maintaining a consultative mentality. Converse with them to consider the wider picture, give suggestions that may be useful, and debate issues as a team. This will guarantee comprehensive understanding of every aspect of a project, resulting in superior answers to problems that arise along the road.
At Gulfstream Legal, we keep in mind your bigger objective and always strive to deliver more effective and creative solutions.
