In the legal industry, there is much discussion but scant implementation on the issue of client feedback. Research shows that few firms make the attempt to gather client feedback in any meaningful or systematic way. Should law firms be interviewing or surveying clients? Indisputably. But, regardless of what the “firm” is doing, every lawyer should be having feedback conversations as well.
