The Legal Associated Temp Agency (LATA) provides experienced temporary attorney services in the Portland/Vancouver area. This start-up small business has created an attorney employment agency sample business plan than will provide guidance to others interested in opening a similar business. LATA's mission statement calls for it to provide experienced attorneys to small and medium law firms for up to three months for temporary projects or on a trial basis leading to permanent employment. The LATA's attorney employment agency business plan details a marketing strategy by which it will advertise in the bar journal, yellow pages, on its own website and through general networking at seminars and other gatherings. It markets itself as an alternative to general temporary agencies, which may not be able to provide the expertise and experienced personnel available through LATA.
The Legal Associated Temp Agency (LATA) is a full-service temp agency providing Portland/Vancouver with qualified, experienced temp attorneys. This market has been addressed to some extent by larger, general temp agencies, but has not been fully served. LATA will offer a much higher quality alternative to the current offering of temp attorneys. LATA will appeal to small- to mid-sized law firms who are in need of some temp legal help for individual projects.
LATA will also be attractive to firms that are looking for a new associate but want to try out the attorney for a trial period. LATA's service will allow the firm to use a temp attorney for up to three months and then decide if they want to convert them into a full-time employee. This significantly reduces the risk associated with hiring new employees who you are not quite familiar with. The Portland legal market is currently undeserved and LATA will easily find their niche.
The projected growth rate for LATA is 107% by year three, with gross margins at 100% as a percent of sales.
The objectives for the first three years of operation include:
To create a service-based company whose primary goal is to exceed customers' expectations.
The utilization of LATA in at least 30 different law firms in the Portland/Vancouver legal community.
To increase LATA's clients by 20% per year through superior performance and word of mouth referrals.
To develop a profitable, sustainable business serving the Portland legal community.
The Legal Associates Temp Agency's mission is to provide the customer with legal professionals for whatever needs they may have. We exist to attract and maintain customers. When we adhere to this maxim, everything else will fall into place. Our services will exceed the expectations of our customers.
