Protexure Tips: Specialization in Niche Law Practices

July 31, 2013

What is a niche?

Often tossed around legal circles due to the increased specialization of the field, a niche is primarily referred to as an attorney???s or a firm???s practice-based area of specialization. In this sense, a niche is an area of practice within a broader area of practice.

How to Find your Niche

A common misconception about niches in the law profession is that you must have a background or extensive knowledge about your niche before even thinking about making it a central part of your practice. A niche can be developed over time by gaining knowledge about a subject that you are generally interested in.

A niche primarily results out of the obvious: the assignments and cases you deal with on a daily basis. Examine what types of work you bring in the most frequently and what you enjoy to work on most frequently. Knowing what you???re good at will help narrow it down. Next, find the types of people you want to serve. What is your target market? Is it low-income or high-income? Are they corporate clients or private? These are questions with valuable answers. Answers you can use to find your niche.

Ok. So you???ve found your Niche, now what?

This is the fun part. This is the time where you start implementing your marketing strategies from the ground up. Like we have stated before on this blog, to start a Solo Practice or small firm, you have to get yourself out there and have an entrepreneurial spirit. A good first step is to join associations related to your niche. This will create networking opportunities and keep you up to date on all the recent developments in your niche.

Your firm???s website is a great avenue to get noticed by potential clients outside of the ones you meet face to face. The days of handing out your business card and waiting for the phone to ring are long gone. Your website must be easy to explore and easy to access. If external marketing services are within the budget, consider Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. There are plenty of sites online that can teach you some SEO basics. More on niche marketing in a later post.

Whether you are starting your own practice or already running one, having a niche is one of the keys to success. By both growing your reputation and establishing a solid client base, it can be the driving factor in getting your practice off the ground.

Protexure Lawyers /// Professional Liability Made Easy

“I found the Protexure representatives to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. They found similar coverage for me for a substantial amount less than I had been paying. I have been pleased with Protexure’s service and would recommend it highly.”

- David M. Lipschutz, Esquire

Receiving a quote from Protexure Lawyers is made super easy by the quick response time of their team. The renewal process is different from what I have ever seen, they offer a mostly filled out application which made the process even easier for me!

- Eric Schwab - Woodbridge, NJ

It was a pleasure working with you, - you gave me the most competitive price, quick turn around and good follow-up.

- Howard S. Kavenow

My account representative was very helpful in assisting me to complete my application. He made me feel like my questions and my business were a priority to him.

- Kim Davis

When faced with a substantial increase from our existing malpractice carrier, we received the name Protexure Lawyers from a referral. On contact, they were not only very prompt in processing our application, but also responded to several coverage questions we had. So far, the service has been excellent.

- Law Office of Shriver, O'Neill & Thompson

Mr. Dixon contacted me many months ago and I told him I renew my policy in September and that it would be helpful to contact me in July or August of this year. He did that; he was very patient with me and assisted me with the application process. He was extremely prompt in replying to my inquiries. I had been with the same company for many years so I was reluctant to leave them. He made the transition quite simple. I am fortunate that he was the salesman who contacted me.

- Robert Lewin

Thanks. You guys got my business because (a) your price was great, and (b) you were responsive and on top of things (a number of insurers surprisingly were not).

- Scott Maxwell

I first came in contact with Ryan on a cold call. Usually I am dismissive of these types of calls, but Ryan was brief and to the point - no hard sell or over promising. In the end, I received a less expensive policy than others I researched. I guess not all cold calls are a bad thing.

- Steve Hunter

Ryan offered to compare my current insurance with what he and his company could offer. I took him up on this, and gave him my pertinent information. I did my own research, and discovered that his quote was lower and the carrier had an A rating. I contacted my existing agent to see if she could match the quote. I had been her customer for a number of years and thought that was fair. She was unable to match Ryan's offer.

- Steve Hunter

I discussed some minor differences in the policies with my account representative, and throughout the process, he was easy to reach and called me back promptly. I value this a great deal. In the end, it was clear to me that I would receive a less expensive policy than I currently have, with the same coverage and excellent customer service.
