Business Development Coaching For Lawyers & Legal Professionals

Arming lawyers with the mindset and skills to build their books of business with support from our team of experienced business development coaches.

Our business development coaches can bridge the gap between a firm’s marketing strategy and the boots on the ground effort needed from individual lawyers to generate leads and acquire new business. They work with lawyers 1-on-1 to help them create and implement individually customized business development plans that can align with their firm’s marketing efforts or that can take advantage of their firm’s marketing resources. Our coaches advise on practice management and provide the personal attention and accountability needed to generate results for themselves and for their firm.

How Coaches Create Accountability:

With regular meetings over time, our coaches hold your lawyers’ feet to the fire. Lawyers want to be successful and don’t want to let themselves nor the firm down. Knowing they are reporting to someone on their BD activities spurs them on.

Every month, our experienced coaches each host a complimentary hour-long Business Development Lounge.
