LMS IRL: Michael on “Podcast Savvy” Panel at LMANE Conference

I’ll be at the Legal Marketing Association’s Northeast Regional Conference speaking on the “Podcast Savvy” panel later today. Susan Peters of Greybridge PR is moderating and Angela Robinson (Marketing Communications Manager at Finnegan) and Robert Ambrogi (host of Law Next) are my co-panelists.

If your firm is planning a podcast or looking to take one to the next level the panel will provide a wealth of information. And, if you can’t make the panel do at least say hello!

Externally Facing Salespeople in Legal with Greg Fleischmann

Greg Fleischmann discussing externally facing salespeople in the legal industry on the Legal Marketing Studio Podcast, July 2018 NYC.

In this episode, Greg Fleischmann, Chief Marketing Officer at Lowenstein Sandler LLP, makes the point that few lawyers went to law school because they want to sell. He and I discuss the potential of bringing externally facing salespeople into law firms so that lawyers can spend more of their time doing the high quality work that is central to a firm’s success. Our discussion covers the challenges that such a role creates as well as the very real opportunities.

Recorded July 12th at Lowenstein Sandler’s New York City offices.

Paul D. Webb and I begin this episode with a general discussion of the relationship between marketing and business development from his perspective as Director of Marketing and Business Development at Richards Layton & Finger. We move on quickly to the heart of the conversation: a discussion of diversity in the legal industry. We touch on the need for advancing diversity not only among the ranks of attorneys (particularly leadership) but also among legal marketing teams. Our conversation touches on the business imperative of having a diverse firm, what it means to be a diverse firm and the processes and systems that will be needed to bring about diverse firms.
