Charlotte, N.C. – Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP is pleased to announce that Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer Kristen Bateman Leis is being inducted into the College of Law Practice Management. Kristen was nominated by her peers and will join fewer than 300 Fellows around the world who have received this honor.
The College of Law Practice Management consists of lawyers, administrators, marketers, government officials, professors, and others who have made significant and sustained contributions to the business of practicing law. The College’s trustees chose Kristen for her leadership and creativity over the years, including through innovative programs like the Parker Poe Path that help put the client perspective at the center of the business of law.
Kristen was also selected because of her commitment to mentoring and teaching others, both on the one-on-one level with countless individuals over her career and at the national level through the Legal Marketing Association and other professional services organizations.
“Kristen deserves this honor,” says Parker Poe Managing Partner Tom Griffin. “She plays a critical role in keeping our clients at the center of everything we do, and she has spent a career developing innovative approaches to the business of law. We are proud that she will represent our firm at the College of Law Practice Management.”
Kristen will be officially inducted as a Fellow at the College of Law Practice Management’s annual meeting this October in Nashville, Tennessee.
