In the meantime...

Keep it simple and credible

A good plan consists of a concise analysis of:

  • Clients
  • Services provided
  • Fees generated

It’s important to provide details on client migration and its management; it’s suitability for integration with the prospective firm’s portfolio, and how it’ll contribute to business development.


Present your content in four clear sections:

  • Base – a description of your current situation
  • Objective – reasons for moving practice and how it’ll benefit the recruiting firm
  • Method – this is where you detail how you’ll migrate your clients
  • Measurement – fee predictions presented as projected turnover


  • Be in command of all the facts, presented in a positive and realistic manner
  • Be confident – avoid qualifying facts and figures with caveats
  • Be clear and definite in you proposals
  • Demonstrate how you’ve considered your portfolio integration
