|STARTING & MAINTAINING YOUR OWN LAW FIRM IN A RECESSION|
Tuesday, Feb 09 2010
Do you have what it takes to start your own firm? Was your decision to start a law firm based on a drastic career change or circumstances beyond your control? What is your game plan, and how are you planning on facing the recent downturn in the economy? If you’re thinking of launching out on your own or if you have already hung out your shingle but need to know ways to sustain your practice, there are a multitude of issues to consider ranging from who will your clients be to whether to specialize or diversify to address the economic conditions to what should your letter of engagement contain. Among the topics to be discussed are:
•Taking personal & financial inventory before you launch
•Determining the minimum budget requirement to start or sustain a practice
•The advantages and disadvantages of commercial leases, subleases and virtual office spaces – the mobile office
•Business and other ethical considerations
•How to think like an entrepreneur rather than an academic
•How to obtain and keep clients
These issues and more will be discussed in a CLE session by panelists who have their own solo or small firm practices. Come learn, NETWORK, get useful ideas, and CLE credits. Please note, the last session on networking does not provide CLE credit.
