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.

Opportunity in the Moderate Income Demographic with The Court Square Law Project’s Naree Sinthusek and Jake Dore

Naree Sinthusek and Jake Dore of the Court Square Law Project discuss the Project’s mission of providing quality legal services for people who believe they can’t afford a lawyer and the market opportunity in that representation gap. We discuss the business and social justice aspects inherent in that mission and the difficulty of balancing those opposing forces. We discuss, as well, the educational aspects of the Project: encouraging the recognition within the legal community of the business opportunity (and social good) in serving this demographic and showing this moderate income demographic that legal representation is available and affordable.
