How can I develop practical business skills?
Lawyers are specialists in their own area. Not many are taught practical business skills or marketing knowledge. Lawyers and legal business professionals need to be proficient in effective strategy, tactics, tools, and their implementation in order to develop their practice and win and retain clients’ business.
Just a few business development and marketing skills we believe are crucial for lawyers to develop in the 21st century include understanding analytics to uncover business development opportunities, developing an online presence, key client relationship management, and the importance of emotional intelligence in successful business development and client retention. Developing these practical business skills takes time and effort on one’s own, but with the right coaching, from seasoned professionals who understand the industry, they can be implemented quickly and impactfully.
This is where our business development coaching can truly benefit your lawyers. We tailor our business development coaching to your firm’s size, culture, and needs, providing useful insights and perspectives for all stakeholders from partners to associates to marketing professionals.

What are the benefits of a law firm retreat?
The importance of retreats to a law firm’s success can’t be overlooked. Firms that regularly hold retreats are usually the most prosperous. When done right, a firm retreat is an extremely powerful tool. Some of the ways a retreat can benefit your firm include:
- Building teamwork
- Resolving issues
- Improving morale
- Forging strategic plans
- Planning for the future
- Improving communication between co-workers
- Determining short and long-term goals
What makes firms reluctant to pursue these benefits is the potential waste of time and money. We hate wasting time and money, too. Let us save you the hassle of planning with our experience and expertise.
