    By: Richard Alonso on Mar 01, 2013

    Date: Thursday, March 21, 2013
    Time: 12:00–1:30 p.m. (Registration/networking at 12:00–12:20; introduction of speaker and program begins at 12:20)
    Location: Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, 1600 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103

    Sponsored by:

    In-house marketers routinely preach the “know thy clients’ business” sermon, but how many of us really know what our clients (the lawyers) do on a day-to-day basis?  This interactive presentation will be moderated by a business developer and include a panel of litigation partners discussing those discrete responsibilities, hundreds of both billable and nonbillable hours, of which your attorneys all too often assume you are aware: what a litigator’s practice actually entails. However, we will then transition into practical takeaways on how marketers can consequently best accomplish mutual marketing goals. It is only by aligning these—occasionally competing—agendas that we function efficiently on the same team. After all, how can we effectively sell a product we know nothing about?
