When it comes to developing client business, more often than not, lawyers find themselves struggling. Most aren’t taught the business of law during their studies, and there is typically a schism between lawyers who prefer to carry on with their practice traditionally versus those who want to actively work on business development within their firm. 

But, what if the secret to finding—and retaining—clients isn’t as difficult as it seems? For Leslie Berkoff, the strategy is simple: foster a collaborative and genuine relationship with your clients and colleagues. So, what is Leslie’s advice to lawyers who want to become successful rainmakers in their industry?
