LSSO's 16th Annual RainDance Conference

The Mid-America Club, Chicago, IL

LSSO's RainDance Conference

LSSO's annual RainDance Conference is the key resource of the organization.  The two-day conference is filled with high-level interactive sessions, roundtables and lively discussions with industry thought leaders.   

RainDance offers less of the theory and more of the practical, effective sales and service strategies for attendees to bring back to their firm and implement immediately.  With an intimate setting, you can expect open and honest dialogue among the attendees about the challenges they face in meeting the demands of the increasingly competitive and evolving industry.

RainDance is for firm leaders who have significant responsibilities for client retention, client growth, new business development, client service, and process improvement strategies to shape the future of their firms. It is recognized and known for attracting the highest caliber of attendees who are often regarded as the thought leaders in their firms and those who help shape the industry.

Meet the 2019 RainDance Co-Chairs

Practical tools and timely information that will help you crank up revenues at your firm - that's what you will get at the 16th Annual RainDance Conference on June 5-6, 2019 in Chicago. 

As a first step in achieving this goal, our two co-chairs with expertise and proven records of success in client service, business strategies and growth financing. You may remember our dynamic duo from their popular "client pitch workshop" at the 2018 RainDance Conference: Stephanie Hinrichs, Director of Client Service at Womble Bond Dickinson; and Neel Lilani, Managing Director at Orrick. 

In her role with Womble Bond Dickinson, Stephanie serves as Director of Client Service, working closely with both attorneys and clients to initiate and expand relationships while ensuring that the firm is providing the highest quality client service. Stephanie also leads the firm's Manufacturing and Transport & Logistics Industry Sectors from the BD side.

As Managing Director of Orrick's global corporate development efforts for technology companies, Neel drives new client opportunities through coordinated strategies across the sector. Neel frequently consults with technology companies on financing and business strategy and manages Orrick’s venture capital relationships.

Message from our Co-chairs to you: 

“RainDance attendees are such an enthusiastic audience. We can’t wait to come back and share our experiences with you. We are already working on a business development program with workshops and sessions that will have you collaborating with your peers to come up with innovative and useful solutions to real business development problems.”
