Diversity as a Business Development Imperative with Paul D. Webb

Paul Webb in the Richards, Layton & Finger offices following an interview with Michael Meyer of the Legal Marketing Studio.

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.
