An entertainer and musician turned lawyer, that’s part of Chris Clark’s story. As a lawyer, Chris is a big believer in data and the prospect of leveraging it for the collective benefit of his clients. The founder of Clark.Law, Chris believes strongly that somewhere along the way, we (lawyers) lost our way. He freely speaks about the role of a lawyer 50 years ago being that of trusted advisor and counselor, and the possibility that present-day lawyers are no longer viewed in that vein.
As a creative, Chris is willing to try new things, a trait that differentiates him and his firm from society’s perception of a lawyer. Whether thought a certification of a profit first law firm, or the belief that non-lawyers should have a seat at a law firm’s equity table, Chris pushes the conversation.
A sought-after speaker on topics related to law firm practice management, Chris can speak to law firm trajectory, structure, and empowerment no matter your role within the firm. For today, let’s explore how Chris’s musical background informs his work. Also what’s one thing the world does not know about Chris, but should, and how does that inform his work.
