Advisor to Clio, Clearbrief, and Tangibly;
Founder of Avvo.com
Just like the pyramids, your law practice will not be built in a day. However, by developing your law firm’s business in simple and intentional ways, you will be on your way to a successful and sustainable future. Mark will discuss one common, but often unnoticed, business strategy that he calls, “Building Pyramids.” He will show how businesses in other industries have built their own “pyramids,” often with you as an unwitting participant. He will also share examples of law firms, big and small, high-tech and low-tech, that are successfully building pyramids and their law firm’s future.
