Testimonials

"We believe the strategic planning process outlined in the document Eric provided to us is quite good. It is very comprehensive from start to finish and is as sophisticated an approach as we have seen undertaken by any law firm (or most corporations)."

Principal, Law Firm Strategy Consulting Firm

 

“There are a lot of people that do what you do (business development coaching), most of whom I wouldn’t work with as they really don’t know what they are doing. They don’t seem to have been there and offer practical advice. But you really do know what you’re doing and you have good ideas. I like that you do much of the work yourself instead of expecting me to do it all- I just don’t have the time. I also like that you help me set priorities and keep on me to do what I need to do. It’s very helpful.”

"I like Eric Dewey, Group Dewey Consulting.  He’s in the west but coaches a few of our partners here in the east.  I think he’s one of the best out there.  Solid knowledge, organized and a good strategizer."

"I would never have thought of this as a niche for my practice. But it makes perfect sense. Clearly there's a huge opportunity here. Your research and plan was fantastic. Thank you!"

"The work that he did was impeccable from start to finish."

“Eric is astonishingly knowledgeable about our firm, is proportionate in responses and solutions, and is sensitive to matters such as ethics and our collegial relations.  He made himself available (on short notice and with quick responses) to John and me all weekend.  He wrote portions of the RFI cold. I simply wish he were working here.”

"I spoke with two of the strategic procurement folks who handled the logistics of the RFP process.  Both were effusive in their praise for the efforts of Eric Dewey, saying that his communications and efforts stood out from among the many firms they dealt with (376 firms got the RFP, 134 evaluation interviews were conducted, 64 negotiations followed, with 47 firms, including ours as you know, being selected).  They both thought Eric represented our firm extremely competently and presented it in a very favorable light."

"The practice focus you recommended looks great!  I knew nothing about that until you pointed it out.  Focusing on some of the foreign companies is a good idea too, given our firm's relationships abroad. Thanks so much!"

"I’ve known Eric Dewey as a member of the legal marketing community for half a dozen years. He has impressed me greatly as a person of great ideas and great follow-through. His marketing and business development strategies are aligned with the tactics he designs and executes. If you want a 50-page business development plan, Eric’s not your man. If you want to triple your business in one year, he definitely is."
