    Best in Show: Measuring Client Sentiment & the Evolving Impact of Brand

    Brand, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. To the average consumer, a given organization’s brand elicits any number of connotations, including logo, culture, reputation or product. Similarly, in the modern legal services marketplace,  client sentiments toward new and established legal service providers have proven powerful influences in the selection of outside counsel and awarding of legal work.  This conversation examines the evolving impact of organizational brand on modern client purchasing behaviors. Our panel will opine how and where legal service providers can gain a competitive advantage in the eyes of current (and/or future) customers.
