Yate Advisors offers business development workshops for the legal profession. Established by two former lawyers and business development executives, Yate Advisors understands the challenges law firms face in growing their businesses and connecting with clients. Our principals have worked as lawyers and consulted with many Am Law 200 firms, partners, and c-suite executives to establish strategies and tactics that help identify, pursue, and capture the most profitable legal assignments. Through our digital workshops, we break down silos in large firms and help lawyers establish cross-practice collaboration teams to win highly sophisticated legal work.
“Yate” is a small community in South Gloucestershire, England, located in the far southwest of the Cotswold Hills. It is about 98 miles (160 km) due west from London. Yate Court is recognized in historical records back to 1086. For several generations prior to 1900, the Manor of Yate, as it was known, was owned by the Randolph family, who resided at Yate House. In the early 1900’s, with changes in the tax structure in England, it became much more difficult to manage large manors like Yate. In 1911, after the passing of Reverend William Cater Randolph, Henry de Beaumont Randolph, my great-grandfather, adapting to economic changes, auctioned off the Yate House Estate. Today, much as my great-grandfather did, we are adapting to economic changes and creating a new approach to conducting our traditional business.
