Insights from a Law Firm Services Director: From Accountant to Business Problem-Solver
Posted by Armanino Dynamics Team
Executive Director of Armanino’s Law Firm Services team, John Schweisberger was recently interviewed for Platt’s Perspective in Inside Public Accounting on the transition from the traditional accountant role to that of a consultant. Entitled “Moving From Accountant To Advisor Doesn’t Need To Be The Equivalent Of Jumping Across The Grand Canyon,” author Mike Platt summed up the feeling perfectly for many in the accounting industry when they consider their career transition.
However, for many accounting professionals, including John and his team at Armanino, the transition from accountant to business problem-solver is a natural progression. John explains in the article: “There are three reasons companies hire consultants:
- They know that things are not right, but cannot identify the root problem.
- They have identified the problem, but have difficulty coming up with a workable solution.
- They know the solution, but need help implementing it.”
At Armanino, John and the entire Law Firm Services team have deep consulting, tax and accounting experience specific to the law firm industry among all firms, in California and nationwide. They’ve worked with hundreds of law firms to identify, develop and implement strategic plans to address challenges such as partner compensation, succession planning, pre-merger analysis and post-merger integration, and much more. If it’s a critical business issue for a law firm, the Armanino Law Firm Services team has diagnosed it, and solved it.
