MARKETING IS LIKE ALGEBRA

Newer partners, senior assoicates and even third-years have been given their marching orders -- seek out new opportunities, pursue leads, get in front of prospects and close those deals. As in the Marco/Polo kids game, start popping up whenever and wherever there are prospects.

A few of the basic business development tools we find simplest to implement for our clients are discussed below and in following posts. They are designed for firm leadership which must take a strong role in making it all happen and ensure follow up is a constant.

Marketing IS like algebra. Keep this overarching theme in mind. Find a formula that works for each attorney, help them refine it when needed, and keep using it. One size does not fit all. Marketing should be tailored according to personality, needs of the firm and needs of the client.

One tactic that works for one won't necessarily work for another. In our work wiht clients the tools are simple, easy to implement and produce measurable results.

THE CORPORATE COUNSELOR

Sarbanes Oxley And The Non-Public Subsidiary: A Non-Sequitur?

By now, corporate counselors are well acquainted with the fact that the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and its whistleblower protections apply to publicly traded companies. What is less well known is that the Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protections can also apply to non-public subsidiaries of publicly traded companies. Although the Department of Labor Administrative Review Board noted that it has not addressed the issue at the appellate level, a number of OSHA Administrative Law Judges (who hear SOX whistleblower cases at the trial level) have done so, and their decisions uniformly hold that SOX can protect the employees of non-public subsidiaries of publicly traded companies under certain circumstances. Those decisions also provide practical guidance for corporate counselors who want to limit SOX coverage strictly to the publicly-traded parent.
