Law firms face all kinds of problems when they try to cultivate a business development culture. Many lawyers are not interested in business development. They’re usually busy and they’re probably earning a comfortable living. So the need to develop business doesn’t seem pressing. Even more significantly, a lot of lawyers hate the idea of selling. In their minds, it evokes images of being pushy, invasive, sleazy, manipulative and needy. Many lawyers are skeptical about their ability to generate business and so they are reluctant to invest time or money. And they don’t like sharing relationships, so are unwilling to support cross-selling or internal business development.

Sometimes You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
Over the last decade, the definition of competitive intelligence has evolved to be about all of the data and information I have access to that helps to isolate and leverage my firm’s competitive advantage and close the deal on business development opportunities. The more data available to analyze, the better informed your decisions and strategies will be going forward.

Those shaping influences, when applied to law firms, can help us legal marketers realize even greater returns for our internal and external clients.
