W. Johnston Associates

As the business of law continues to evolve, a well-run, strategically-focused firm possesses the opportunity to differentiate itself and separate from the pack. W. Johnston Associates can help you identify, organize and implement the actions necessary to create a practice that is highly competitive, profitable and in control of its own destiny.

We work closely with the leaders and managers of growth-oriented law firms to create and execute strategic initiatives designed to accelerate growth, improve efficiency, and boost competitiveness in an increasingly aggressive legal marketplace.

Strategy & Implementation

We work with firms to develop clear, insightful strategies that are not only meaningful and ambitious, but also actionable and responsive to changes in market dynamics.

Merger & Acquisition

W. Johnston Associates has the years of experience and skill to ensure that mergers that should happen do and those that should not never get close to consummation.

Finance & Compensation

W. Johnston Associates understands the importance of creating systems and structures that are efficient, non-bureaucratic and support the firm’s culture and strategic goals.

Governance & Structure

We work with clients to develop refined governance and management models aligned with the firm’s strategy, consistent with the firm’s operating policies and firm culture.
