Business Development Lawyer Coach

As Canada’s only business development coach exclusively for lawyers, I understand that excellence in your profession does not always equate to success. 

My approach is to work with you to boost your practice, with a focus on securing new clients and obtaining more work from existing ones.

Unlike generalist coaches, my expertise is rooted in tangible experience with a successful track record in business development building two practices.

Here’s what you can expect from my coaching:

  • Working with you to always develop a strategic, targeted approach.
  • Working with you to create a practical plan with realistic goals and tasks.
  • A partnership that ensures accountability to your goals and tasks.
  • Meeting you on a regular basis to review progress, provide advice and update tasks – always keeping in mind your work pressures.
  • Challenges to your existing perceptions to foster growth.
  • Learning from real-life business development scenarios.
  • On-going support and guidance for emerging opportunities.
  • On-call to offer immediate guidance for an opportunity.

Initially, some of my clients were curious how I, as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), can effectively coach lawyers. The answer is straightforward: the business development strategies that proved successful as I grew my practice in two different professional firms are relevant. All my coaching clients are lawyers who benefit from and value my experience. Additionally, my extensive experience as a litigation support and forensic specialist has allowed me to work closely with lawyers for many years. That said, one does not need to be a lawyer to coach one effectively. My uniqueness is that I focus solely on business development.

My coaching method is not a one-size-fits-all approach that some coaches might use based on standardized training. Recognizing the uniqueness of each lawyer, I customize my coaching strategy to suit each.

The initial coaching session is dedicated to building rapport and understanding each other. During this session, I’ll assess your business development experience, identifying your skills, strengths and areas of concern.

As we progress through the coaching sessions, we’ll tackle the issues that are crucial for your effectiveness. At the conclusion of each session, we’ll set practical and achievable tasks for you to complete before we meet again.

I am based in Toronto and work across Canada. I conduct coaching sessions via video calls, and do in-person sessions in Toronto. Each session lasts approxiately one hour.

Group training is conducted in-person regardless of the city.

I invite you to a complimentary call to explore how we can work together to achieve your business development goals.
