City Bar Member Price : $25.00
Non Member Price : $40.00

The fee includes a cocktail reception.

Please join us for a lively discussion with outstanding women rainmakers, Nina Gussack, a partner at Pepper Hamilton, who has been called “The $65 million woman” and Sheila Birnbaum, a partner at Quinn Emanuel, who has been referred to as “The Queen of Torts.” This event is for you if you ever wanted the answers to your rainmaking questions, including: How do you build relationships with clients? How do you get clients to knock on your door? How do you plan for and execute a pitch?

Women lawyers who are also rainmakers enjoy greater career success, including higher earnings, as well as more job control and influence. Learn some of the strategies for developing your own book of business, and why women can have a tremendous advantage in the rainmaking process if only they develop some basic marketing skills. A cocktail reception will follow.
