As the Client Development Specialist, you will organize and implement business development activities that support the global growth of the firm and specifically the practice(s) to which you are assigned. The Specialist must be a self-starter with the ability to work alongside the team, and independently, to guide, direct and advise lawyers in a sophisticated marketing and business development environment.

Manage event logistics, internal/external communications, budget and vendor/venue relationships. Develop targeted invitee mailing lists. Report on RSVPs and who-knows-whom.
  • Assist attorneys with maximizing event involvement by identifying opportunities for client and target touch points.
  • Proactively collect feedback after the event and encourage follow-up activities. Report on return on investment.
  • Collaborate with the library and Market/Competitive Intelligence team to review in-depth research and analysis of clients, prospects and competitors to determine a strategy for client and target outreach.
  • Work with the firm's Communications team to create targeted, strategic submissions for practice-related and attorney rankings, surveys and awards, including Chambers and Legal 500, and other industry/geographic/attorney-specific awards.
  • Maintain practice group/industry descriptions, web content, matter lists, case studies and other marketing content to ensure that material is compelling and up-to-date.
  • Track, analyze and evaluate activity associated with business development initiatives across the firm and recommend strategies to increase the initiatives' overall effectiveness.
  • Support thought leadership campaigns, including project management and mining of campaign data for business development opportunities.
  • Identify and partner with key industry organizations.
  • Provide back-up as needed to fellow members of the Business Development team.

Who You Are:

  • 4+ of experience in marketing or professional services business development, ideally in a law firm or other professional services firm.
  • Minimum BA, BS or equivalent
