The Legal Intelligencer – What Would You Do if Your Business Dried Up Tomorrow? Rainmakers Respond: Francine Griesing

The Legal Intelligencer – What Would You Do if Your Business Dried Up Tomorrow? Rainmakers Respond: Francine Griesing

Francine Griesing Shares Advice as a Rainmaker in The Legal Intelligencer

Francine Griesing was featured in the article by Stacy West Clark in The Legal Intelligencer which shared marketing advice from leading rainmakers. Fran offered the following response to the question, “What would you do if your business dried up tomorrow?”:

“Every lawyer, regardless of size of firm, area of practice, or success as a rainmaker, is well served to have a professional development plan and to review and update the plan regularly. The marketplace is moving faster, so having a plan helps you be nimble when changes occur that alter your practice and opportunities. If you have been doing that, you are less likely to be caught off guard if your market changes and likely have a contingency plan in place. So, the first thing for me and my team is to maintain a plan that is a living document. In the absence of that, I would make a plan and execute on it. To do so, I would focus on what work would I like to do that is needed by paying clients, who are the decision makers to select lawyers to do that work, and where do you find them? Where do they congregate, what do they read and who do they listen to? And then, try to attend the events they attend, write for the publications they read and speak at the conferences they attend. Building a reputation as an expert in the field in which you want to practice is key to distinguishing yourself from the pack.”

Francine Griesing Featured in Philadelphia Business Journal for Women in Law Conference

Francine Griesing was included on the panel, “Going Their Own Way: Women Starting Law Firms”, as part of the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Women in Law conference on June 14, 2018. Coverage of the event was included in the article, “Women in Law: Those who made a big move share the lessons learned”, where Fran shared some of the challenges for women-owned law firms:

“There are benefits and burdens of the moment of time we are in. Often we are asked to partner with larger firms to diversify their team, but we are expected to accept a lower rate. To me that’s a really big challenge because we don’t want to turn down work, but if you are pulling the same weight and working on the same matter and have the same expertise and credentials, why should you take less just because your firm is owned by a woman?”

Fran also notes the plus side of starting the firm: “No matter how hard it is to run your own firm, nothing feels as good as being your own boss.”
