Rose D. Ors

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Rose D. Ors is founder and CEO of ClientSmart. She teaches her clients—law firms and in-house legal departments—new and refined ways to think about the business of law. She provides concrete ways for in-house legal departments and law firms to work collaboratively with each other to build value-driven relationships.

Rose brings to her clients over 15 years in leadership roles that have given her an inside-outside view of the business of law—attorney at both a large and a boutique law firm, general counsel, and director of business development at an Am Law 200 firm. She also brings her experience as an entrepreneur and executive. Her first entrepreneurial venture in the legal industry pioneered the use of flexible attorney staffing (contract attorneys). In less than 10 years, Rose grew a one-person shop into a five-office national enterprise acquired by an NYSE-listed company.

Rose received her JD from the University of California, Berkeley (Boalt Hall), where she was on the Law Review and Moot Court Board. She received her BA in Rhetoric also from the University of California, Berkeley.
