why I believe I can help you …

I may actually be the first entrepreneurial trainee solicitor in the UK to successfully create a personal brand together with devising a refreshingly unique relationship building, relationship sales and relationship marketing approach which achieved impressive marketing and sales results.

Throughout my final year as a trainee solicitor and since founding EntrepreneurLawyer (a period of a little over a year during the 2009 recession) I generated and referred £562,000 of new client legal work enquiries.

You’re probably thinking I’m bragging. Please permit me to continue and hear me out …

I am NOT sharing the above to impress you, but to impress upon you that there are opportunities to significantly enhance YOUR career prospects, add value and income to the firm you serve and possibly even increase your own income (whatever stage you are at in your legal career) by following the blueprint sales development ROAR model.

Want to hear more? And learn how to do this for yourself?

I can help you …

  • By sharing exactly ‘how’ I generated and managed to refer £562,000 of new client legal work enquiries as a very junior lawyer (whilst primarily carrying out my day to day trainee duties and ‘technical law’ fee earning tasks)
  • By sharing the culmination of my life’s work, skills, talent and experiences with you I’d like to think that I (together with the EntrepreneurLawyer experts) may be able to help you get to wherever it is you feel you need, want or desire
  • In my capacity as a sales legal coach, educator, advisor, trainer, consultant and mentor I’d welcome the opportunity to help you (the lawyer of today) become a lawyer of tomorrow, today, to benefit you, your career, the legal profession and entrepreneurs

If you have any questions and/or you’d like to get in touch then I’d be delighted to hear from you.

Warmest regards
