NEW YORK CITY BAR TO HOST SYMPOSIUM FOR GROWING NUMBER OF SMALL OR SOLO LAW FIRMS

The New York City Bar Association will host its Sixth Annual Law Practice Management Symposium on Thursday, November 5 th, 2009. This year’s symposium, “Jumping In and Staying Afloat in Your Solo or Small Firm Practice,” is expected to draw a more diverse set of participants than in previous years, thanks to economic conditions that have spurred many to start their own small firms or solo practices.

The symposium will feature workshops on budgeting, marketing, technology, and networking along with a full-day tradeshow where attorneys can learn about products and services specific to the small law firm practitioner. For more information, visit www.nycbar.org

“The current economy has affected lawyers in a major way, and we are seeing many law professionals opening small practices as a result of being laid off,” said Alla Roytberg, Director of the City Bar’s Small Law Firm Center. “More and more lawyers are taking the plunge, and the City Bar’s Symposium was created to help them stay afloat.”

Even before the economic downturn, small and solo law firms made up nearly 94% of New York metropolitan area legal services.
