When Will Sunday Sales Come?

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 22:24:09 +0000

When will Sunday sales come? Perhaps they’re here, with “garage sales.” But I suspect “Sunday” laws prevent this day from becoming a national trend.

Managing teams of skilled professionals gathered on the fly

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:45:09 +0000

Years ago, seeking to address an RFP (request for proposal) of a large prospective client, I assembled a team of skilled specialists. I was flattered that they all said “yes” to joining me, knowing only me and the prospective client. None of us, individually, could have met the client’s needs. We trusted one another enough… Continue Reading

Your Brand is You

Wed, 20 May 2015 21:46:04 +0000

Going from one generation to another in the 1980s when I was asked to be the law firm’s Chief Operating Officer was difficult enough … and dysfunctional if seen from a 50,000 foot level. But, today, with four generations in the same workspace and literally competing for the same jobs/clients, many conflicts and sparks emerge… Continue Reading

Two changes are about to occur in the lives of “want to be lawyers.” First, to appease their conscience, the Board of Trustees of the California State Bar considers requiring law students to take on one more obligation before graduating, 50 hours of free or low-cost legal services for the “needy” within a year of… Continue Reading

“Selling” is an essential for all professionals

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 17:49:57 +0000

“Marketing” is no longer only for the rarefied equity partner. Quinn Emanuel, a major law firm, announced it will require Associates and Of Counsel attorneys to actively participate in at least one marketing effort during the year. There is skepticism among marketing personnel, and even lawyers, how effective such a requirement will be. It would… Continue Reading
