Networking and making connections is a key aspect of business development for lawyers. We know it is definitely harder to make and maintain those connections in our current world. But there are some alternative ways to keep in touch and one of those ways is through virtual networking events.
We've curated a list of some upcoming events where hopefully you can connect with some other lawyers to build your network and meet potential referral sources. Take advantage of the chat function and the break out rooms to meet someone new and make sure to follow-up after the event!
