Marketing the Marketing Department

Chadbourne Parke law firm marketingNothing is more frustrating when a an MBA or JD who has toiled in the firm's marketing vineyards, striven mightily to generate new business for the firm, and vainly proposed great ideas like CRM, client surveys and competitive intelligence only to have them ignored -- than it is to have a lawyer at the firm ask:
