USLAW NETWORK has named Cheryl Hanley, a marketing and business development leader from Cleveland, Ohio, as its USLAW NETWORK practice group, special projects and corporate partner director, a newly created position.

“Cheryl (Hanley) brings more than 11 years of experience from within the legal arena – and law firms in particular – and we look forward to working with her to expand the positive impact our dozens of practice groups, exclusive corporate partners and several important initiatives have on members and their clients’ legal needs,” said Roger M. Yaffe, CEO of USLAW NETWORK.

Hanley, who previously was director of marketing and business development for a full-service law firm serving clients globally, will manage USLAW’s 24 practice groups while helping to set and implement each group’s strategic direction, initiatives, and business development efforts.

Hanley’s career has been centered on client service, project management, account management and innovation to create opportunities for future growth. Her diverse background is a blend of all aspects of business development, marketing, public relations and advertising, including as a billable member of professional service organizations and a product manager for a global manufacturing company. She has most recently spent over a decade in business development and marketing leadership roles for several Cleveland-based law firms.
