What to consider when replacing exiting employees

When it comes to recruiting staff to fulfil the needs of the business, instead of taking on one member of staff, who can turn their hand to a myriad of legal matters, you have to employ several, according to John Howe, managing director of West Yorkshire-based John Howe and Co.

In every business, particularly a family-owned law firm like ours, succession planning always is at the back of your mind because you need to have someone to take over the smooth running of the business if the unexpected happens.

It is vital that you have a plan in place to ensure that the transition from the old guard to the new is seamless and that clients, while they will be aware of the change, do not notice any disruption to the level of service.
