    Senior BD Director

    LSSO has a stellar reputation for equipping lawyers and other professionals with the skills they need to excel in finding – and keeping – profitable new business.

    I highly recommend their Coaching Advantage Certification Program for law firm business developers and those who coach them. The instructors have essential real-world experience, explain the 'why' behind the 'what and how,' and use effective training tools and techniques that deliver immediate value to attendees."
