Overview

GILLIAN HELPS DORSEY LAWYERS STAY CONNECTED TO THEIR CLIENTS, THEIR COMMUNITIES AND THEIR COLLEAGUES.

Gillian is a Dorsey lifer. She began her career as a Dorsey trial associate before her interest in, and aptitude for, client service and the business of law led to firm management inviting her to join the Marketing & Business Development Group as Client Relations Director. Gillian is known by Dorsey lawyers as a creative problem solver and a compelling storyteller. They rely on her to use those skills as she provides advice and strategic direction on client experience and service opportunities and internal cross-selling. She leads the firm’s client teams and client feedback initiatives and works closely with partners and Dorsey’s talented finance professionals to develop creative fee arrangements for our clients. Her Dorsey colleagues and Dorsey’s clients look to Gillian as a sort of firm concierge, acting as a non-billable resource for all things Dorsey and as a connector to other attorneys and to other Dorsey clients. Gillian conducts business development training to Dorsey associates and partners and speaks on a variety of topics concerning the legal business.
