My Formal Announcement–sent to my e-mailing list

Dear Colleague:

In order to be more responsive to the changing needs of the legal profession, I have returned full time to my consulting business, Seckler Legal Consulting. My new contact info is below.

For the foreseeable future, I will be dividing my time between three activities. First, I will be spending a significant portion of my time doing business development for a startup company called IPEngine . I am also coaching lawyers on how to increase their marketing effectiveness. Finally, I will continue to do a limited amout of recruiting, working exclusively with partners who have portable business of greater than $400,000.

I am particularly excited about the work I will be doing with IPEngine, an IP services company that helps corporate law departments and law firms to achieve better practice leverage. IPEngine has a team in India that can provide a wide range of IP services. I encourage you to take a look at their website to learn more.

IPEngine is part of a relatively young industry that is commonly referred to as Legal Process Outsourcing (or LPO). The current economic climate and a very favorable ethics ruling last summer issued by the ABA means that the industry is poised to take off this year.

I will be writing a lot about this subject matter in the near future and will be launching a blog for IPEngine (I’ll send you a notice when it gets going.) In the meantime, here is a link to an article I published on the subject.

These are challenging times for the legal profession. In an environment where controlling legal expenses is a resounding theme, there will be winners and losers. I look forward to helping you to continue to be one of the winners.
