CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
Linda LaBrie, Owner and President of LaBrie Consulting, was one of the first in-house legal marketers in the U.S. to conduct client feedback interviews and to use that feedback to help law firms tailor their services to fit their clients’ needs and expectations. Her work has contributed significantly to the advancement of client relationship and service management in the legal profession.
In 1991, when marketing and branding were still foreign concepts in much of the legal community, Linda successfully helped two Boston-area law firms establish comprehensive marketing and business development programs. Through a combination of lawyer education and sheer determination, she was able to establish many of the best practices in marketing and branding that still are in use today.
At every step of her career, Linda has contributed to the advancement of law practice management through comprehensive lecturing, involvement in LMA, and mentoring of young marketing professionals. We are pleased to recognize Linda LaBrie’s insatiable desire to improve our profession by inducting her as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management.
