    Conference Agenda at a Glance

    Complimentary Pre-Conference Workshop

    Skating to where the puck will be: Finding growth in a flat market
    Do you want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to firm growth? One of the most difficult challenges facing firms today is finding the insights and tools to help them find growth in a competitive and challenging market. This session will highlight the fundamental elements of finding growth in a flat market. Discussions will revolve around determining the future of the market, leveraging tools and processes for cross-selling and measuring successes, and finding, in the end, your puck to score the big goal.

    There are a limited number of spots for this in house professionals-only workshop. Registration is required.

    Keynote Sessions

    Are We Distinctive? Creating Compelling Experiences to Win More Business
    Firms that tend to win in competitive bid situations have that special something that separates them from the pack. Something that gives them the edge when the playing field is seemingly level. It’s elusive – even a bit mysterious. However, clients know it when they see it and will pay more to have it. The firm that finds it is the one that wins – time and time again. Rick and his team have studied hundreds of pursuits – both wins and losses – to help firms better understand what it takes to win from the perspective of their clients and prospects. This highly-engaging and interactive presentation will have you tweaking your next pursuit strategy.
    Rick Davis, Senior Director, RSM

    The Present and the Future of Legal Technology and its Impact on Client
    Acquisition and Retention
    Technology, innovation and the changing market for legal services is impacting how law firms acquire and retain clients and how law firms remain profitable and competitive. Professor Gabriel Teninbaum will explore the legal innovation landscape and changes on the way. Hear how large and small law firms are incorporating technology, responding to client demands and feedback, and how AI and other technologies and trends continue to impact the competitive legal landscape.
    Gabriel Teninbaum, Professor of Legal Writing; Director of the Institute of Law Practice Technology & Innovation, Director of Law Practice Technology Concentration, Suffolk University Law School

    Are We Distinctive? Creating Compelling Experiences to Win More Business

    Firms that tend to win in competitive bid situations have that special something that separated them from the pack. Something that gives them the edge when the playing field is seemingly level.  It's elusive - even a bit mysterious. However, clients know it when they see it and will pay more to have it. The firm that finds it is the one that wins - time and time again.

    Rick Davis, Senior Director at RSM, a leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services, and his team have studied hundreds of pursuits - both wins and losses - to help firms better understand what it takes to win from the perspective of their clients and prospects. These years of research have exposed that special something that makes a firm distinctive. 

    Gabriel Teninbaum on the Present and the Future of Legal Technology and its Impact on Client Acquisition and Retention

    Technology, innovation and the changing market for legal services is impacting how law firms acquire and retain clients and how law firms remain profitable and competitive. Professor Gabriel Teninbaum will explore the legal innovation landscape and changes on the way. Hear how large and small law firms are incorporating technology, responding to client demands and feedback, and how AI and other technologies and trends continue to impact the competitive legal landscape.

    Gabriel Teninbaum is a professor of legal writing at Suffolk University Law School. He is the Director of the Institute on Law Practice Technology & Innovation and the Director of the Law Practice Technology Concentration at Suffolk University Law School.

    Join LSSO at RainDance on May 9 & 10, 2017 to hear Rick Davis, Gabriel Teninbaum and law firm sales and service professionals share their industry knowledge and insight.

    We are excited to share this link to LSSO's 5th Women Lawyers Rainmaking Survey.

    Silvia Coulter and Catherine Alman MacDonagh are once again conducting this survey. Please take and/or share this survey with other women lawyers.

    The first Women Lawyers Rainmaking Survey was conducted in 2003. At that time, it was one of the only surveys collecting data on women lawyers’ business development efforts and successes. The Women Rainmaking Survey now serves as a leading resource for law firms and attorneys.

    The benchmarking data provides valuable insight into:

    • The keys to rainmaking success
    • Profiles of successful women rainmakers
    • How much time is dedicated to business development for best results
    • What business development activities work best
    • What are the barriers to advancement, potential road blocks to success, and areas for improvement
    • How firms and others are supporting women lawyers
    • Best practices for firms and women lawyers

    Please take the survey and/or share the survey with other women lawyers.

    We will be sharing preliminary results at RainDance on May 9 & 10, 2017. If you haven't registered yet, click here to join us in Dallas, TX.
