Adrian Dayton lost his job as an attorney at a major corporate law firm in
Buffalo, NY, during the economic downturn in 2009. Instead of taking another
job, he wrote his first book, “Social Media for Lawyers: Twitter Edition” and
soon after that, “LinkedIn & Blogs for Lawyers” (co-authored by Amy Knapp).
By then, social media had exploded; Adrian was in the right place at the right
time. His work was featured in major publications like The Wall Street Journal,
Entrepreneur, and Fast Company, and several major legal publications,
including The National Law Journal, Above the Law, and Law.com. His
consulting business rapidly expanded, leading to engagements training
thousands of professionals all over the world—more than 16,000 people in 10
countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, England, Italy, Spain,
Switzerland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. In working with many of the top
professional service firms in the world, Dayton realized that education about
social media wasn't enough—firms needed a better process to leverage the
combined networks of their team members. Thus, Clearview was born.
