fSquared Marketing was founded in 2012 after we made a simple observation: as law firms and other professional services companies were being squeezed on fees by their clients, and the market has become more competitive as companies were bringing their professional resources in-house, some firms were cutting their marketing and business development budgets. As a result, they often had resources who specialized in just one area of marketing and business development, or junior team members that lacked the seasoning they required for success. Usually they supplemented with external agencies who had little industry experience or sole practitioners who provided only one facet of the services they required.
And so we launched fSquared Marketing, a legal marketing and professional services consultancy, with expertise in all of the facets that our clients need – business and client development, marketing, digital and technological. We are building a team of experienced professionals who have both the technical expertise and industry know how our clients need, at varying levels of experience, in order to offer the right resources at the right budget and level – so our clients can successfully maximize the budgets they do have!
fSquared Marketing is on a mission to provide the best possible, most culturally informed, practical business development and marketing resources to law firms and professional services companies who need them.
“We offer a unique value proposition in the market. Our global experience in law firms & professional services, combined with our expertise in marketing, business development & digital execution, can now be leveraged by our clients.”
Due to the nature of the work we undertake, we have consciously chosen not to list our clients on our website in order to respect their confidentiality. Believe it or not, in most markets, using our services can become an advantage that our clients don’t want known by their competitors.
Rest assured, however, we have worked with various “top of industry” law, accounting and professional services firms, in addition to some of their smaller peers, over the past 20 years, doing for them what we can do for you. We work with global, regional and boutique firms in Canada and the United States. And before you ask – Yes, all over Canada and the United States.
We also do a pretty great job at assisting the individuals who practice at these firms in relation to their own brand profile, business development and marketing needs – just remember we’ve worked there too and know what makes sense in the market.
