Welcome, Members and Friends!

Welcome, members and friends, to the new LMAMN.org!

This site has been in the works for a year or so, now. We wanted a site that was not only easy to use and navigate, but provided another way for members to get involved—writing content for it and volunteering to help manage it. And here we are.

The regular site won’t go away. Think of this as an addendum to the national site. But don’t worry – we’ll make it as easy as possible to access content in multiple ways.

Another cool feature is the comment system. We’re opening up comments on each post for members to add their thoughts.

And we’re always open to suggestions and new volunteers.

So, take a look around! Subscribe. Join in the conversation.

And stay warm!

 


LMA-MN 2013 November Program & Your Honor Awards

Selling Value to Sell Premium

Alycia Sutor, Partner at Akina will discuss with members how to sell value at a premium.

At a time when client loyalty is being tested and economic pressures for law firm profits are at an all-time high, lawyers are challenged to find a way to get premium rates when clients are demanding cost reduction. Selling Value to Sell Premium is a program designed to shift the focus from pricing and efficiency to a conversation of value and effectiveness.

Participants will learn from market research:

  • Why law firms are losing sales pitches
  • How to implement innovative and proven techniques to sell value that deepens relationships, increases profitability, and differentiates your firm from your competitors
