Hosted by Solo, Small & Mid-Size Firm Management Committee and the Small Business Committee of the Business Law Section
Being a sole practitioner entails more than just being good at the law and understanding how to file a complaint or argue before a judge. You also have to understand how to start and run a business.
Whether you already have your own firm or are thinking about starting it, there are a lot of decisions that need to be made.
- Where should my office be?
- Do I even need an office?
- How can I afford to fund my practice?
- How can I budget to keep my firm afloat?
- What will I need for technology?
In this practical CLE program, panelists will discuss the considerations to be made when deciding to start your own practice, options for office space including a virtual office, business plans, how to come up with a budget and obtain a loan for your practice.
Join us to hear perspectives from leaders in their fields of practice representing small to midsized firms, about the essential things you must do to succeed in starting, managing and maintaining your own law firm!
