Course Description:

In today's economic climate, more and more young attorneys are choosing to open their own
law practices, or join together with a few other attorneys to form a small law firm. While that decision may be the right choice in terms of work-life balance, there are many practical considerations that must be considered.

Join NYCLA's Young Lawyers Section and a panel of solo practitioners and members of
small law firms as they discuss the key issues to be aware of when opening your own firm, such as:

  • Attorneys' fees¬†¬†escrow accounts and other banking issues of interest to lawyers
  • How to determine whether a potential client is the right one for you
  • How to organize your law office and divide the work load, including attorney
    supervision of subordinates and non-legal staff
  • Ethical considerations of marketing your firm, adhering to the attorney advertising
    rules and solicitation
