Based on this analysis, we were able to define our positioning in the market more precisely so that we could address the right target groups with our services and our external communication. The analyses was carried out in the workshop.

Mr. Gendlin was responsible for the planning and conducting of this workshop. The workshop was very goal oriented and the work results were valuable for the further development of our marketing strategy and communications. Mr. Gendlin was a competent moderator and adviser and one could see quickly that he knows the legal industry very well.

Support for Rankings, Improvement of Ranking Position

Law Firm Owner Bettina Hörtner
Law Business assisted my law firm in its work with rankings.

As an individual lawyer with a special combination of legal and business services due to my previous activities, it was of great help to me to be able to draw on the extensive know how of Law Business during the ranking process and to mostly outsource the work related to rankings.

The support was very competent and completely customized to my needs. Here, you do not purchase a “one-size-fits-all” standard consultation – Law Business tailored their services as well as the work procedures individually to my requirements and consultation services as a boutique law firm.

This is illustrated by the result of our work as well: I am now, even as a “mere” individual lawyer with a niche business model, ranked by Chambers for the first time – and that was just my first attempt to be included in the rankings. Therefore, I can highly recommend Law Business to all individual lawyers as well.

KIEHL Business Law Firm, AT

KIEHL Business Law Firm (http://www.kiehl.cc/)

Provided Service:

Law firm positioning, sales and marketing measures

Equity Partner Philippe Kiehl

Law Business first carried out a re-sharpening of my law firm’s positioning. A profitability analysis was carried out with the aim of determining which services fit which target groups.

Then, based on the new positioning, sales and marketing measures were defined. The new positioning helps me to focus better on my target groups.

Before I mandated Mr. Gendlin, I had already been dealing with these issues myself for quite some time, but I did not make any progress because I lacked the right sparring partner. I believe that such a project is hardly possible without the input of an objective third party. It simply needs someone like Mr Gendlin here, who knows the legal market very well and can guide you objectively through the difficult issues of such a process.

Of course, it also helps enormously that Mr Gendlin has conducted such processes several times and therefore always asks the right questions. The sales and marketing measures must also be defined with appropriate care; the legal sector simply has very specific requirements.

I can only recommend any law firm to work with Mr Gendlin, the new positioning has helped me a lot.

Equity Partner Wolfgang Maier
The strength of Law Business is the tailor-made support, which has resulted in a considerable attention in various print media for my firm. Usually lawyers have not the necessary PR contacts to present their achievements in a timely manner to the public. Often there are no time or resources for marketing issues. Law Business focused on the interesting facts from my practice and communicated to the appropriate media.

Sales & business development, coaching and preparation of a business development plan

Equity Partner Mag. Gernot Wilfling

As team leader of the Capital Markets and Banking Group, I and my team are involved in numerous business development and sales activities, but I always had the feeling that we had even more potential here.

Law Business analyzed our existing business development activities. The analysis was carried out on the one hand by reviewing the relevant documents and on the other hand by structured interviews. Law Business then drew up a business development plan that tightened up the existing measures and defined new measures for us. This was very helpful for us, especially because Law Business helped us to define our goals. 

Mr. Gendlin was very helpful and competent from Law Business’s side as a project manager. Such a process only works with someone who really knows the legal market very well and also knows how to ask the right questions. I can explicitly recommend Law Business for the establishment of such business development measures and a proving sales coaching, I have gained very good insights into the objectives and implementation of sales through this guided reflection.

Upon completion of the above-mentioned projects, we then commissioned Law Business with other assignments as well.
