Strategic Plan Ascent

Navigated by our team of experienced problem solvers with deep industry and functional expertise, Mountaintop’s Strategic Plan Ascent provides practice groups and firms the practical, customized Strategic Plan they need for business growth and success.


  • Law Firm Teams
  • Law Firm Leaders


Each Strategic Plan Ascent is a bespoke process that will be customized to suit your team’s needs. Mountaintop will handle the research, analysis, planning, and facilitation of your Strategic Plan. We will need your team’s input regarding key background information and to participate in working sessions to help evaluate solutions. Upon the presentation of your final, written Strategic Plan, we will wrap up the Strategic Plan Ascent with an additional Training Ascent tailored to the Plan and key next steps mutually agreed upon. The Training Ascent noted below can be exchanged or customized to suit your team’s needs.


At the summit, your team will be able to:

  • Contribute to your firm’s profitable growth
  • Leverage a practical, detailed Plan for success that includes specific priorities and follow up actions
  • Confidently promote themselves and your firm during critical business-building interactions

— Partner, Boutique Law Firm

As a marketing director for a regional law firm, Mountaintop helped us develop and execute a marketing strategy that addressed the needs of a firm experiencing hyper-growth. Precious’ advice was so revered, our team jokingly would ask “What would Precious do?” before making big decisions. A quick study, she was able to grasp the firm’s culture and goals in the early stages of our relationship. That understanding lead to a robust marketing program and long-term strategy.
