Thanks to new business models, technology, and extreme drive, small and solo firms can do well.
In this brutal time of upheaval in the legal sector, there's plenty of incentive to at least check out this option. For those of you, including law students, interested in doing just that, the New York City Bar Association is hosting its 8th Annual Law Practice Symposium for solos and small firms. That will be on November 10th, from 8:30 A.M. until 5 P.M.
Among the topics covered in workshops are:
- Office space
- Entity choice
- Tech support
- Marketing and networking [online, offline]
- Escrow accounts
- Attorney engagement letters
- Cost-effective legal research options
- Billing practices.
Here is the brochure providing the details [Download Brochure-final].
New York City Bar members and law students can attend for $25. It's $50 for non-members. That fee covers not only the workshops but also breakfast, lunch, and the music reception. The location is the House of the Association at 42 West 44th Street, in Manhattan.
