BFKN is pleased to announce Sivan Koenig Galinsky as the Firm's new Chief Marketing Officer. Sivan is charged with leading all business development and marketing initiatives and functions, with a focus on driving the strategic and client-driven goals of the Firm forward.
Sivan joins the firm from Brinks Gilson & Lione, a full-service intellectual property boutique law firm based in Chicago, Illinois, where she was Chief Marketing Officer. Prior to joining Brinks in 2017, Sivan held business development and marketing positions at Sidley Austin and Foley & Lardner. Sivan’s career of more than a decade has focused on law firm management and specifically in legal marketing.
“We are thrilled to have Sivan join us to lead our business development and marketing efforts. Sivan will continue to elevate Barack Ferrazzano’s brand and reach, both nationally and around the world. Her experience, vision and understanding of the complex legal market will be a tremendous asset to the Firm and all of our lawyers as we continue to expand our practices and serve our clients.” — Andrew R. Grossmann, Chair, Business Development Committee
About The Firm
Founded in 1984 as an alternative to the traditional large law firm, BFKN has steadily grown to over 130 attorneys and paralegals. The Firm aims to provide extraordinary service in a wide range of industries for each of our 15 core practice areas. Without the overhead of large, multi-office firms, we have the flexibility to serve our clients in a global capacity — when, where, and how they need us. In doing so, we successfully serve large multi-national corporations in all manners of legal transactions and matters. Our business model is predicated upon having a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and the development of long-lasting relationships, which yield great efficiencies. Our lawyer retention rate is extremely high, with very few of our attorneys or paralegals leaving to pursue legal careers at other law firms. As a result, we are able to provide a consistent team of professionals, enhancing our client relationships and allowing us to become increasingly cost-efficient in addressing our clients’ legal needs.
