The Company

LegalBizDev helps law firms increase client satisfaction and profitability.  We literally wrote the books that helped start the legal project management movement, and are also widely recognized as leaders in legal business development.

While many competitors offer educational programs in these important areas, only LegalBizDev has developed proprietary processes to help lawyers change their behavior. The company was founded more than 30 years ago by Jim Hassett after he earned his Ph.D. in psychology at Harvard University. Dr. Hassett has been a frequent speaker at legal conferences and is the primary author of widely used Quick Reference Guides for both legal project management and legal business development.

LegalBizDev offers coaching, webinars, workshops, retreats, train the trainer programs, publications, and more to help each lawyer identify the action items that are most likely to produce immediate and practical results for their practice, their personality, and their schedule. Our behavior change processes help lawyers to make the best use of their limited time by quickly building on best practices from other law firms and other professions.

Through a strategic alliance with Altman Weil, we also offer clients a broad range of management consulting services in related areas, including strategic planning, practice group management, client surveys and custom benchmarking, lawyer compensation systems, marketing strategy, and much more.

LegalBizDev has developed and delivered award winning training since 1985. For more information, visit our web page at or contact us today to discuss the best way to meet your unique needs.
