Nov. 12-13: ABA Law Firm Marketing Strategies Conference

This exciting conference will be presented by the ABA Law Practice Management Section and held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Philadelphia.  There are plenty of valuable topics worthy of mention, including a panel in the Small-Firm Track featuring our own William W. Bowser.  Bill, along with Tom Mighell, author of the national legal blog, Inter Alia, and co-author of the latest book for lawyers on effective collaboration tools,  The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together, our friend and legal-blog guru, Tim Stanley of, and Immigration Law blogger, Greg Siskind, make up the panel who will discuss How to Maximize Web Sites, Blogs, Social Networking Profiles, and Other Aspects of Web 2.0.  

One of the two keynote speakers also has my interest piqued.  David Lat is the founder of Above the Law, a blog that puts the saying “any publicity is good publicity,” to the test.  I’d guess that Mr. Lat will offer conference attendees some very valuable insight into how firms can best handle bad online publicity and avoid ending up the feature in his wildly popular online legal tabloid.

To take advantage of all of this great knowledge, visit the section’s website to register or learn more about the conference.
