This lunch-provided seminar will explore the strategies, tactics and tips for developing and growing a successful litigation practice. In this panel discussion we will explore:

ü  How to identify and open the door to meeting potential new clients.

ü  How to develop the discipline to execute an on-going marketing strategy.

ü  How to overcome the false assumption that: “I can’t do marketing, I’m no good at it.”

ü  I don’t have time to work on business development.

This seminar is intended for both new lawyers and experienced litigators.
