My legal practice's growth has been substantial and while it is a good problem to have, growth does cause some growing pains. Leasing When we first leased space on a 3 year lease, I out grew it in 6 months. My current lease is up in March and we now need to rent an entire floor in the city if we are going to attempt to last the next 3 years without bursting at the seams. On current growth rates I would anticipate almost needing 2 floors in 5 years time. Overheads My conveyancing searches bill, which I get paid for an average of 22 days after I pay for them has gone from $2k a week to over $10k a week Staffing At the moment we should have another admin person, another legal assistant and 3 more lawyers. We have grown from 3 people to almost 30 since March 2014.
