A Little Ray of Sunshine

Thanks to the 3-Geeks team for this article which offers a ray of sunshine about the business of law. To see the light will require significant changes in the way law firms think about their business.

The article focuses on the importance of differentiating your firm in your marketing efforts. Why is your firm better suited to serve existing clients and prospects? Where does it excel? What are the proof points that demonstrate successful outcomes? And how is all of this communicated?
