Managing a Thriving Law Practice with the Latest, Greatest Remote Technologies
In this CLE, Zein Obagi will share all of the critical tools that he and his 5-attorney team use to stay in touch, collaborate effectively, stay responsive to potential new clients and communicative with existing clients while researching and briefing robust issues for state and federal courts across California. They adopted use of most of their systems within the last year; and, you too can do it. This session will be fast-paced, and offer you things you can do to develop internal video or written manuals for repeat processes, up your marketing game, take your firm’s paperlessness to the next level, de-clutter your email inbox, and more.
Over the last few years, Zein has invested significantly with law firm mastermind groups, including currently as in Crisp Elite as part of which he receives bimonthly coaching calls. He has learned from business and attorney leaders from across the U.S. about maximizing efficiency and collaboration in the digital age. As a result, his firm was able to make a quick transition during COVID to remote working without missing a beat for their clients. In this hour, he shares how his firm works to help enhance yours.
