About Macpherson Kelley

Macpherson Kelley is a large, award-winning law firm and a part of the Multi-Law international legal network. They wanted to make client experience and client service their point of differentiation in the market. However, they lacked data on the experience felt by their clients. To improve, they felt they needed to know better where they excelled and needed improvement. Ideally, they wanted a platform that went further than simply collecting client insights but one that inspired real change in day-to-day operations.

How Client Culture Helped

ClientCulture implemented a client experience program delivering an unfiltered view of the firm’s service and relationships directly to professionals in real-time. This monthly program included all clients who received an invoice that month, thus ensuring unbiased, independent, and trusted data. Feedback was accessible to all legal teams throughout the firm in each of their four offices, to understand the client experience, workshop improvements, and celebrate success. The solution helped the firm address concerns of less happy clients, optimise the experience of other clients to improve loyalty, and understand drivers of client loyalty. The platform also identified clients with the potential for expanded services and willingness to refer. Over 200 staff regularly accessed the platform, reviewed feedback, and insights to continually improve service.

I think it is a great and user-friendly way to receive and track client feedback and improve as a firm.
