At the recent Marketing Partner Forum, I had a chance to speak with Katherine D’Urso, Chief Client Development Officer for WilmerHale.  I had the opportunity to listen to her speak as part of a panel entitled “Advancing Collaboration: Integrating Legal Project Management in Firmwide Business Development.”

I, probably like many of you reading this now, wondered: “How is this possible?” Katherine D’Urso took a few minutes to sit down with me to discuss how WilmerHale accomplished this feat.
