Our personal brands make us unique as lawyers.  They also create an environment where conflict reigns and diversity is lacking if the personal brand distinctions are not clarified and harnessed well.  The result is a happier workforce, collaborative work environment, maximum efficiency and better attorney-client relationships and attorney- attorney relationships.
In this interactive session, learn:
  • the shocking connection between diversified legal environments that actively seek to eliminate bias and attorney-client/attorney-attorney relationships
  • how you can have a corporate legal culture that mitigates business risk AND still drives creativity and innovation- of employees and the law firm brand
  • how you can maintain a diverse law firm and utilize this diversity to grow- including better hiring and managing/terminating employees
  • the Five “Cs” of brand management to achieve, and cultivate, diversity in your law firm environment and in attorney-client relationships
