Are you thinking about hanging your shingle? Every lawyer—at some point—considers opening their own law firm. Running your own practice means your name is on the letterhead. There are no partners to placate, and all the proceeds go directly into your pocket. It’s every lawyer’s dream.
However, there’s more to running a law firm than practicing law. In addition to being a diligent lawyer, you need to be business-savvy, and corporate acumen is conspicuously absent from most law school curricula. You need a business plan that will help you start a strong law firm.
Join CBA and DBA member benefit provider Clio, and their Lawyer in Residence Joshua Lenon, as he looks at the seven steps every lawyer should take before opening their own law firm. Each step will help you focus your efforts and improve your firm’s crucial first year. Learn about:
- Managing overhead expenses
- Business development tactics for first-year law firms
- Legal tools for research and templates
- Lessons learned from successful law firms
