We are a boutique management consultancy serving law firms (and law firms, only) around the world and in every market segment, to help your firm better prepare for tomorrow.
At Adam Smith, Esq., we approach every engagement as the unique situation it is, with no one-size-fits-all solutions. Since our founding in 2002, our approach has been high-touch, informed by data – and, importantly, your firm’s history, capabilities and aspirations.
We focus on: Strategic clarity; reinforcing what differentiates your firm; fostering internal collaboration; aligning compensation with long-run strategic objectives; running your firm as the business enterprise it is; evaluating potential acquisitions or combinations—and helping you use the power of “No.”

Where We’ll Be
There’s no substitute for face to face. Meeting in person invites nuance, shading, adds dimensions to communication, and fosters stronger relationships.
We think the world has, unintentionally, relearned its value during our global pandemic. It’s the way homo sapiens has socialized, learned, and triumphed for a couple of hundred thousand years. We look forward to seeing many of you in person again very soon.
What People Are Saying
“Feedback from the retreat has been universally positive. We’ve hired strategy consultants before but those meetings devolved into inward looking diatribes about collective misgivings. Your leadership of this retreat was completely aligned with action, progress, and results; you both did a masterful job of keeping our eyes on the future. I strongly believe that real differentiation will come from this scrupulous focus on our strategy.. And I envision that you both can really help us in implementation. Bravo!”
