Legal Marketing and Business Development Veteran Elected Fellow to Elite Group
The College of Law Practice Management (COLPM), which recognizes distinguished law practice management professionals for their achievements in the profession, has elected Equinox Strategy Partners’ Managing Partner Jonathan Fitzgarrald as a Fellow.
“The Trustees and I hope that you will accept this recognition by your peers for the valuable contributions you have made to the field of law practice management,” wrote COLPM President William C. Migneron, Jr. “The number of nominees each year is limited and highly selective.”
COLPM is comprised of nearly 250 Fellows internationally who have made significant and sustained contributions to the legal profession, either as practicing attorneys or as management professionals. Mr. Fitzgarrald and the other 2017 Fellow-Elects will be formally inducted at the organization’s annual conference in October at Georgia State University School of Law in Atlanta.
“Being considered for the COLPM is definitely a career milestone for me,” said Fitzgarrald, who launched Equinox Strategy Partners in early 2015 after having served for nearly two decades in-house as the chief business development and marketing officer at three different law firms. “To receive such a designation from a group of my peers is the highest form of recognition.”
Fitzgarrald has earned a reputation in the legal profession for pushing the envelope as it relates to evolving the profession and empowering attorneys at all levels to develop their own practices.
“Jonathan and the Equinox Strategy Partners team have been extremely successful in developing our firm’s professionals at both the Associate and Partner levels,” said Barry MacNaughton, managing partner at law firm Ervin Cohen & Jessup in Los Angeles. “His efforts have been an integral component of our growth and success over the past two years. We highly value Jonathan’s counsel and congratulate him on this most noteworthy recognition.”
