Business Development and Marketing for Litigators (06/13/22)

Includes a Live Event on 06-13-2022 at 2:00 PM (CDT)

Litigators face unique challenges trying to bring new matters into a law firm.  While the importance of business development and marketing is well-understood, most litigators do not have a coherent plan allowing them to consistently bring in business while efficiently using their time and effort.  Our speakers will help attendees put together the major components of those plans, and attendees will be able to ask questions and get practical answers from recognized experts and established rainmakers.

Topics and Speakers:
Marketing for Litigators.  Marketing tips to promote litigation practice to many potential clients at the same time, including the five key components of marketing infrastructure that every litigator should have.  Topics will include raising your profile, how to leverage speaking and writing opportunities, using social media, and newsletters and other communication strategies.
Jocelyn Brumbaugh, Founder, Builden Partners

Business Development for Litigators.  One-to-one techniques that litigators can use to develop business.  Topics include avoiding mistakes that litigators often make, networking and building relationships, and getting more referrals.
Steve Fretzin, Founder, Fretzin, Inc.

Tips from Experienced Litigators.  The methods that they have used to become rainmakers within their own law firms.  Topics include becoming leaders in bar associations and industry organizations, elevator pitches, business lunches, how to get on “best” attorney lists, and using firm marketing resources to your advantage.
