Update from Founder: Scaling and the Importance of People and Culture

Update from Founder: Scaling and the Importance of People and Culture

If you have scaled a company or helped someone scale a company, you’ve lived through what I’m writing about today. There are so many inflection points given our current trajectory, and we are excited about all of our present opportunities, as well as the opportunities we see in the near future!   

We are growing rapidly at Stock Legal, and are incredibly grateful for our amazing client base.  My job today is to grow our team in a way that matches our mission, vision and value proposition to our clients, but also in a manner that preserves the culture we’ve built here at Stock Legal. 

I look at it as two sides of a coin: 1) One side is the culture amongst the Stock Legal team.  2) The other side is the service we provide to our clients.  Both are incredibly important, and one impacts the other. 

Here’s what I mean by that:  Our culture at Stock Legal is unique – we have flexible schedules for the attorneys, pay competitive salaries (with hourly and origination bonuses), utilize fixed fees in a number of our practice areas, and have created a safe space where the attorneys can impact the growth trajectory of the firm.  That allows us to attract talented, bright, motivated, friendly, helpful, communicative and practical attorneys who provide a high-quality legal product to our clients. Because of those talented attorneys and the culture created by the Stock Legal team, we are able to provide exceptional service to our clients.  As such, the two go hand in hand. 

One of the best pieces of advice I received when striking out on my own was this:  Culture is arguably the most important thing at a firm your size.  Protect the culture you’ve built at all costs.  As we scale, I’m heeding that advice and working hard to protect the culture we’ve built here at Stock Legal.  In doing so, we will continue to provide that high-quality legal product and service that has led to our growth.
