Portland Legal Firm

The incoming managing partner of a mid-sized law firm in Portland wanted to take a fresh look at their internal financial and operational reporting. He wished to ensure that the firm was measuring the right things, was receiving accurate and relevant information, and that they were interpreting and acting on that information in an optimal manner.
 
LedgerSource was retained to address those specific issues and to provide a fresh, objective view point from the frame of reference of a financial professional. Upon completion, the client was pleased with the results and cited the accomplishments and benefits of the project listed below.

Accomplishments & Benefits

Assisted MP in navigating changes in management personnel while ensuring that core accounting functions (and firm cash flow) were not interrupted.

Process Analysis & Improvement
