Title: “Biz Dev Breakthrough”
Presented by: Lawrence Kohn, Kohn Communications

Summary: A 45 minute presentation (interactive) designed to help you overcome your business development obstacles with practical tips you can use right away.

Our speaker, Larry Kohn, has been helping lawyers in business development for over 30 years. He has spoken at other TEN groups with very positive feedback. For more information about Larry and his firm, visit www.kohncommunications.com.

The Esquire Network
Or TEN, grew out of the realization that attorneys receive most of their clients as referrals from other attorneys. TEN, built by lawyers for lawyers, is different from other networking organizations. At TEN, we want to make it easy for you to develop a network of attorneys so that when a potential client asks whether you can help, if you cannot say “Yes, I can do that,” then you can say “I know somebody who may be able to help you.”

Each month a group of local attorneys (Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, and surrounding areas) gather to expand their referral network among their peers. Join us at the next Glendale TEN meeting. Referrals come from people who know and remember you. TEN makes this relationship-building process easy; all you have to do is show up

Moderator: Lisa Aminnia

Meeting Host: James S. Cooper with Levinson Arshonsky & Kurtz, LLP

As the center of the Valley, we attract attorneys from all over LA County. We are the Flagship TEN meeting, and our group has a consistent loyal following of premier attorneys from a diverse cross-section of practice areas.

Our meeting is held in 16th Floor conference room.

Starbucks will validate parking for 2 hours in the Galleria’s parking structure with any purchase.

Each month we have an interesting topic meant to engage members and guests in learning more about one another while also gaining insight into how to manage their law practices.

THIS MONTH’S TOPIC: “BACK TO SCHOOL”

With school back in session, we can all look back fondly (or not!) on our law school days. Were there any classes that were pivotal to your legal career? Did you have professors who contributed in a significant way to the decisions you have made as an attorney? Have any law school classmates had a major impact on how you view your profession? Come share your stories on September 13!

What Our Members Say

  • Mauricio Leon de la Barra Mexico and California Attorney at Law

    “TEN can be described in TEN words: An extraordinary source of referrals, resources and very good friends. I got my first referral a few days after my first meeting. Its members have always provided my clients with outstanding legal solutions in different areas of law. And I have the honor of considering each member a very good friend.”

  • larry-rothsteinLarry A. Rothstein, Esq. Trial Lawyer & Civil Litigator

    “Although I have been a member of other professional networking organizations, David’s idea of one limited to small and solo law firms is both unique and exciting. Many of us in small and solo practices have developed expertise in limited practice areas. This makes for a particular dynamic because we are able to refer clients with specific needs to those having the specialized skills to handle them.”

  • cynthia-elkinsCynthia Elkins Employment Law

    “Have been a member of TEN since its inception. It is a wonderful and very cost efficient resource for solos and attorneys from small firms as this is my primary referral source both for receiving referrals and giving out referrals and this wonderful group of members helps to expand my referral base.”
