Sandra is the co-founder and President of LEGUS, the international network of high quality, small-to-mid-sized law firms. Described as “a key visionary in the legal industry”, she works closely with LEGUS’ Advisory Board and its Leadership Team to provide forward-thinking education, management, administration and marketing programs that help LEGUS go above and beyond the traditional network model.       

Sandra is also a Principal of Boyer Greene, LLC, a law firm consulting organization with offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Reno, Nevada and Bedford, New Hampshire USA.  She has been consulting with law firms since the early 1990s, and her expertise includes general management; succession planning (leadership and client); strategic marketing and development of marketing tools; strategic planning; associate development; retreat facilitation; lawyer compensation; firm evaluation; and personnel management including the recruitment of the law firm professional and administrative team.

Her legal industry experience includes work at the Institute on Law Firm Management, and the Institute of Continuing Legal Education at the University of Michigan Law School – where she developed and administered law practice management courses and seminars.

In 2003, Sandra was inducted as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management, an honorary organization of leading legal professionals from around the world. She is the co-author of: Associate Retention: Keeping Our Best and Brightest (June, 2002), and The Effective Associate Training Program, Revised Edition (2006.) Both books are published by the published by the American Bar Association’s Center for Continuing Legal Education. 

“The alliances formed among LEGUS members have resulted in close relationships and created true and lasting friendships within an environment of trust and confidence. As a result, these alliances have enhanced LEGUS lawyers as people and thus improved the quality of their legal performance and their ability to service their client’s business needs.

Today, when a client’s business extends beyond a LEGUS member’s boundaries there are very good odds that two things are in place: (a.) There will be a LEGUS firm to hand the work to, and (b.) There will be a high level of trust and confidence in place on both sides of the referral."
