Every lawyer wants to hear new ideas for developing and growing their business. This unique program led by Stuart Teicher will give you the opportunity both to hear new ideas on law firm business development and also share your own gems of wisdom with your peers. Besides leading the workshop discussions, Stuart will bring his own law practice experience, as well as his entertaining teaching style, to bear on practical and proactive ways to ethically grow your business, with a focus on solutions to various dilemmas of law firm marketing, advertising and business development. Stuart will also provide powerful insights on the kinds of communications skills that lawyers need to connect with clients. After all, a strong attorney-client relationship based on solid communication is the best referral tool.

Don’t think CLE programs are really worth the money? This one’s different! We should be pricing this at several hundred dollars. However, the cost for this workshop is a one-of-a kind value-based proposition where, after an initial entry fee of only $50, you get to decide what amount to assign to the value you receive. Remember, there’s 3 hours of MCLE credit, including 3 hours of ethics.

So, if you want to grow your business by hearing from and sharing with your peers, the “best practices” that can bring you success, don’t miss this opportunity. Space is limited to 50 attendees! 

This seminar is an intermediate to advanced level program.
