Right Hand Service

Conseil québécois de la franchise

« Nous avons écouté cela, explique Me Chanel Alepin, l’avocate de chez Alepin Gauthier à l’origine du programme. Nous sommes une entreprise familiale, nous existons depuis quarante ans et nous avons un mélange de relève et de personnel chevronné. Nous cherchions une solution novatrice qui satisfasse nos clients et qui les pousse à nous appeler avant que leur situation ne soit trop grave. Nous sommes arrivés avec ce programme annuel de conseil téléphonique illimité. »

DROIT-INC

« C’est un programme gagnant-gagnant, a-t-elle déclaré à Conseiller. Les clients n’hésiteront plus à nous appeler pour la moindre décision qu’ils auront à prendre et cela va leur éviter bien des erreurs. Nous voulons mettre en place une communication constante afin d’installer un climat de confiance. Et nous, on sera là lorsqu’ils auront besoin de modifier un contrat ou d’acquérir un concurrent, par exemple. »

« Obtenir des conseils juridiques pour une petite ou une moyenne entreprise (PME) peut coûter très cher, surtout si ces services sont facturés à l’heure.

Alepin Gauthier Avocat, un cabinet de la région de Montréal, a décidé de commencer à offrir des conseils juridiques illimités à un taux annuel fixe ajusté en fonction du chiffre d’affaires des PME. »

Initiative Intrapreneuriale

Notre projet est réellement innovant avec son caractère illimité et honnêtement, si j’avais parlé à mon père de ce projet en 1978, c’est certain qu’il m’aurait dit « on ne fait pas ça, sinon on va fermer ». Mais aujourd’hui, il pense différemment. Donc pour moi, ça dépasse le stade de la différence générationnelle. Cela dépend davantage de la capacité et de la propension à savoir s’adapter à son environnement, à son milieu professionnel. Le service Bras Droit n’est pas seulement mon projet, c’est un projet familial.

« L'idée est d'accompagner les entreprises dans leur croissance en leur évitant de faire des erreurs. Et c'est une façon pour nous de nous rapprocher des PME. »

Le Nouvelliste

«Comme la relève a bien souvent envie d’apporter sa couleur, nous avons apporté une innovation avec le concept du bras droit. En regardant les tendances dans notre industrie, nous avons remarqué des alertes soulignant que le taux horaire pour les avocats est voué à disparaître. Alors bien des cabinets ont tenté des modifications avec les forfaits, des pourcentages, mais dans une entreprise de type familiale comme la nôtre, c’est difficilement envisageable»
