The Defense Perspective: Building Your Brand

From Texas Attorney Stephen Gustitis: The Defense Perspective: Building Your Brand

Stephen picked up on my Thought Leadership article in the Texas Bar Journal. Check out the structure of this post. It's a good example of how to link to your peers to a blog discussion.

Influentials On The Web Are People With The Power To Link

Scott Karp has it right. Great quote: "Anyone can become influential on the web simply by setting up a blog or an account on a social network or social bookmarking site and linking to people and content that interests them. Anyone who is influential offline and wants to retain that influence online needs to start linking — and to leverage those links in a large network."

Tuesday, January 08, 2008 :: Leverage Can Help and Hurt Law Firms

Good article by Brian Ritchey on the difficult balance of leverage. It's more of touchy-feely point but I think Partner lifestyle has to come into play too. Swapping a slightly lower average billable rate for not being a slave to your practice... well, has merit too. Not to the point of giving away one's practice, but to the point where Partner lifestyle is a factor.
