Law firms offer a variety of legal services to individuals and businesses. Like any organisation, law firms will typically operate under a certain organizational structure, although the structure of small firms will differ greatly from that of larger ones.

Types

Law firms have several business forms available, from a sole proprietorship to a partnership, limited liability company or corporation. Each form will often have an inherent structure based on its size, although large organisations can choose from a few different structures.

Features

A corporate structure in law firms can have several partners who oversee a particular legal activity. In this structure, several individuals with specialised knowledge run different parts of the organisation. Each division will often have a corresponding staff member to complete the cases in that particular niche.

Considerations

A law firm corporate structure typically contains separate divisions for accounting, secretarial or payroll. Other times, the firm may include a small office for each of these functions within predetermined groups. An administrator may be responsible for these functions rather than an attorney.
