Octagon Law Group Inc. was founded by a group of experienced legal/accounting/marketing/IT professionals and business executives who are of the view that the business of law is calling out for change. They saw a need for the introduction of established business principles to the traditional model of practicing of law: principles such as the separation of management from the practice of law and ownership, economies of scale, and the power of automation.
One of Octagon’s core beliefs is that the right job should go to the right person. Lawyers are educated and trained to do one thing: provide legal services to clients, and they do that one thing often times very well. However, in traditional law firms, lawyers are frequently drawn away from the practice of law towards the business of law, which they are ill-equipped to manage effectively.
Octagon’s team is made up of highly specialized and skilled professionals in financing, marketing, accounting, information technology, human resources and business management. Together, these professionals possess the knowledge, experience and skills necessary to effectively manage client law firms ensuring that our clients are unshackled from the demands of running their respective law firm so that members may practice law.
For firms that wish to grow or effect a change in ownership, Octagon can facilitate the acquisition of law firms through financing or by finding suitable merger candidates.
For firms that require assistance managing the business side of their practice, Octagon offers small to mid-size firms a one-stop solution for back office tasks such as marketing, human resources and accounting. For larger firms, Octagon also provides management consulting to firms that need guidance on how to effectively manage their practices.
