There are three major challenges lawyers have: increased competition, the billable hour, and lack of knowledge about sales and marketing
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
In former recessions the legal industry has weathered quite nicely. However, lawyers are finding this "great recession" is affecting them as much as anyone else. Over 3,000 attorneys have lost their job in 2009, with many predicting more to come. "There are three major challenges lawyers have: increased competition, the billable hour, and lack of knowledge about sales and marketing," says Stephen Fairley, CEO of The Rainmaker Institute, the nation's largest law firm marketing company that specializes in helping small and solo firms. The Rainmaker Institute will hold the Rainmaker Retreat, a two day legal marketing boot camp for solo and small law firms, in Orlando on October 23-24.
"Thousands of attorneys have attended our Rainmaker events and learned how to dramatically improve their legal marketing and business generation strategies," says Stephen Fairley, CEO of The Rainmaker Institute. "We present proven techniques they can take back to their office and implement with their staff."
