Training, Keynotes and CLE

A little training can turn more of your lawyers into a motivated team of high-powered rainmakers. 

Having practiced as a commercial litigator and marketing partner, Ross speaks credibly to lawyer audiences.  In sessions ranging from one hour to a full day, he provides a practical, hands-on approach, ensuring that your firm's marketing is productive and effective, and that your lawyers will have clients when they need them.

These interactive programs are educational yet entertaining, fully supporting the efforts of a firm’s in-house marketing professionals.  Ross also emphasizes the applicable ethics rules relating to communications, solicitation, advertising, and promotions, to help the programs qualify for CLE credit.
