Playing the long game of business development.
Alternative fee structures and Pricing.
The small business network.
The question “who do you think I should connect with?” at the end of a meeting can be game changing for you and your firm..
You need to have both a destination and a map for your firm – it will be unique for every law firm.
There is a network of small businesses who help and support each other.
People are increasingly intentional about whom they choose to work with; it is no longer just about being a big name.
