I founded my lawyer coaching and consulting business in 2009, after three decades as a transactional lawyer and proven business generator. As a large firm partner for 25 years, I am uniquely positioned to advise lawyers practicing in today’s challenging competitive environment and in a profession undergoing dramatic structural and cultural change.
I believe that all 21st century lawyers require extensive business, relationship building and other practical skills training in order to prosper. Unfortunately, these skills are rarely addressed in depth at law school or in most law firms.
I provide career coaching services to law firms, lawyers, law schools and law students, with a particular focus on the skills essential for business development. My clients include young partners committed to building a book of business, more experienced partners interested in growing their practices or addressing mid-career challenges and associates at all levels of experience. In addition, I consult to lawyers building careers in corporate in house departments and those who have chosen JD advantaged career paths.Testimonial “Betsy is a ‘must have’ advisor for anyone who requires an understanding of the practice of law, its evolution and future trends, and how to be effective within it.
