This morning we talked with Marc Weintraub, a lawyer at Steptoe & Johnson, who arrived in Charleston, West Virginia, after living in Portland, Maine for three years. He went from not knowing a soul to becoming a well-recognized rainmaker in town. Plus the firm just promoted him to partner.
Click on the link below to hear our brief conversation with Marc, where he discusses:
- His decision to get involved in the community. This led to a seat on the city council, where he meets numerous business people in the city, and has plenty to talk about with them.
- He took advantage of events sponsored by the firm and got to know the clients. He proved to the partners he could handle himself with the clients.
- He found the marketing partners and got to know them, even asking them to lunch. Helping them opened many doors.
