Have you ever sat down and thought about what a solicitor wants from you as a barrister?

Your next client could be anyone, so effective targeting is a tricky business, says Douglas McPherson
Professional services have woken up to the true value of client relationship management (CRM) in recent years. More importantly they've realised that CRM is about relationships and old-fashioned human interaction rather than software.
However, in a world where clients could well be one-off purchasers, is a well-timed email update or birthday card ever going to create more than a trickle of referrals to family and friends? My question is: with all this focus on the client, who's taking care of your referrers?Read more...

What our clients say about us
After a rigorous tendering process Size 10½ Boots came out as the obvious choice. Their understanding of our culture, issues, market and direction showed that they had put in the effort. Coming to the end of the first year and we are seeing the results that were promised and a new enthusiasm from the firm to embrace BD. I have no doubt that the investment we have made in Bernard, Doug and the team will be paying dividends for many years to come.Jason Edge, Head of Marketing and Business Development, Mayo Wynne Baxter Solicitors
Our experience with Size 10½ Boots has been a breath of fresh air and, speaking as someone who would have laughed heartily at the idea of BD training for barristers 3 years ago, I am a convert and looking forward to what we can achieve with our new found direction and approach.Scott Baldwin, Head Clerk, St Mary's Chambers
Bernard provides refreshingly down-to-earth advice. He was great at demystifying and humanising a series of marketing concepts and giving us practical action plans we could each take away from our training session. The training was lively, productive and fun.John Haresnape, Head of UK Business Development, Taylor Wessing LLP
We needed to train our lawyers on the art of bringing in new business. Size 10½ Boots designed and delivered a high impact training programme, supplemented by one-to-one coaching for senior managers. The result was to create an energized marketing culture which has had a positive impact on the bottom line just when we needed it.Mark Johnson, Managing Director, TPP Law
