If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If a lawyer has top notch legal skills, a comfortable office, a stellar case management system, but no one knows about the lawyer or her firm, does she have a viable law practice?  Building a successful law practice requires developing a brand, building and implementing marketing strategies, which includes identifying your market, honing your elevator speech, networking, and participating in the community you serve.  Join us for a hands-on training with Madhu Singh who will share best practices of building a successful practice through a variety of marketing strategies. You will leave with a marketing plan in hand with ideas to get you going right away. 

Madhu Singh is the Chief Legal Office of the Foundry Law Group. Since starting her solo practice, MK Singh Law, in 2009, Madhu has worked to pioneer a nontraditional approach to legal support that emphasizes efficiency, agility and hands-on collaboration. Today, as the founder and Chief Legal Officer of Foundry Law Group, Madhu fosters a unique innovative work environment that empowers both the team and their clients’ teams to achieve their fullest potential. She is in her element working side by side with CEOs and businesses crafting legal solutions that fit the needs, vision and values of today’s growing companies. She is particularly interested in the emerging intersections of technology, new media and business law and enjoys helping companies navigate the front lines of these fast-developing areas. Madhu is Adjunct Faculty Lead at the Community Development and Entrepreneurship Clinic at Seattle University School of Business and School of Law and on the Board of Director of the Women’s Business Exchange. She received the SBA 2014 Women business owner of the year award, been named a rising star each of the last three years by Superlawyers, and awarded "Superb business attorney" by Avvo.com. Seeking to make a positive impact in our community, Madhu also spends her time speaking at CLEs for attorneys, advising at micro-enterprise clinics, providing pro bono services for nonprofits, serving on nonprofit boards and hosting free seminars for local businesses. 

The 2016 CLE Connections Series, which is open to law students and attorneys, aims to offer high quality CLEs designed to help you run a successful law practice and opportunities to connect with other lawyer-entrepreneurs, especially those serving the moderate income client community.
