Laura Terrell: Cultivating a Business Mindset in Your Legal Career

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Laura Terrell discuss:

  • The increased focus on the business of law.
  • The need for doing marketing in your law practice.
  • Running a law practice is running a business.
  • Understanding your client’s industry and needs not just their legal needs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Staying on top of the issues, more so than through a printed publication, is key to staying on top of what is happening in the industry.
  • Have the conversations early in your career about how the law firm is run and what it would take to take the path you want to be on.
  • Don’t be afraid of feedback. Without knowing where you stand, you can be blindsided by decisions made by the firm you work for.
  • To best serve your client in law practice, you need to understand what their concerns are and how it affects business.

“Get comfortable with asking questions and doing investigations. Communicate with the people that can help you.” —  Laura Terrell
