Marketing versus business development in law firms Founder Partner at Legal Leaders . Cristina Salvador - Female Lawyer From Brazil

In addition, seeking to understand particulars regarding Intellectual Property/Specific Regulations and all criteria in connection with business law, since corporate structures and tax planning strategies are of utmost importance for transactions to develop. My personal experience allows me to state that without proper legal/accounting and technological advisory services, no business tends to succeed in today's environment, which tends to process automation and reduced profit margins.
