    The Business of Law Done Smarter

    Hello & Welcome

    We teach our clients—law firms and in-house legal departments—new and refined ways to think about the business of law.


    Our teaching and coaching approach is focused on three centers of excellence — RFP Programs, Sales Training Programs, and Key Client Programs. Our rigorous and engaging learning modules motivate and inspire our clients to adopt new habits that lead to measurable financial success.

    Request for Proposal Programs

    Increasingly, the Request for Proposal (RFP) is the process in-house legal departments use to select outside law firms for a single matter, a series of matters or legal services panels.


    Our law firm RFP Program is designed in different modules to fit each client's transition from a partner-driven model to a firm-wide evaluation and response-to-win model.
