Legal Marketing & Business Development Consulting

Proven results helping lawyers increase brand recognition, market share, revenues and profits.

Connecting Dots

Connecting dots within the rapidly evolving legal industry requires insight to see patterns early and solve puzzles with speed.

I offer an independent mind and customized solutions to audacious clients who want change.

Specializing solely in legal marketing and business development, I have helped lawyers win more than $720 million in new business since 2001. I work with a wide range of law firms and legal service providers — BigLaw to NewLaw — Global, National, Mid-size and Boutique — helping them connect the dots to:

• Acquire more clients by identifying new business opportunities.

• Deepen relationships with current clients by expanding business and cross-selling connections.

Increase profitability by shortening the sales cycle and boosting win-rates.

Gain greater market share, build firm, service and individual profiles, and leverage client relationships.
