What They Didn't Teach Us About Running a Business in Law School

with Neil Tyra

Tyra_LawEntre_Final_Bug-half-2

Do you ever feel like what you learned in law school didn't prepare you for the world of running a law practice? Law school didn't teach us how to start our practices the right way so we could scale them into a thriving business. We didn't learn how to make sure that our businesses would meet our financial goals and provide the type of lifestyle we deserve. After ten years, I was fed up with struggling in my practice and decided to begin a journey to scaling a

successful practice that would actually allow me to finally live the life I've always dreamed of. I invite you to listen in on the conversations I'm having with some of the most successful solo and small firm practitioners  along with leading business entrepreneurs and share how I am implementing what I am learning. All with the goal of helping you take control of your practice, and your life. This is The Law Entrepreneur.

Ep. 135 – Growing a Law Firm Through Mergers & Acquisitions – with Ross Albers

|

Ross Albers returns to the show to talk about the unique strategy he has adopted to build his practice: mergers and acquisition. Ross has been successfully acquiring other law firms for about two years now, and I was just fascinated with how it all works.

 

I ask about everything from valuing a law firm to how much you pay and what the conversations loo like, and Ross was kind enough to indulge me and answer all of my questions. I hope you enjoy this discussion and learn as much as I did!

Ep. 134 – Leveraging LinkedIn to Find Leads, Build Authority, & Grow Your Business – with Craig Hansen

|

Craig Hansen comes to us from Jakarta, Indonesia, to share his expertise in a platform that many attorneys often don’t use enough in their digital marketing – I know I don’t – LinkedIn!

 

A lot of us end up creating a LinkedIn page, filling it out (if that), and then never really touch it again. However, there’s a lot of benefit – and business! – you can get out of LinkedIn, if you know what you’re doing. Craig really opened up my eyes during this conversation and I know he’ll have a tip or two you can take advantage of, too.

Ep. 133 – Lessons from the Attorney Who Wrote the Book On Being a Solo Practitioner – with Carolyn Elefant

|

If there were a monument for early technology adopters in professional services (and I’m sure that, one day, there will be), Carolyn Elefant’s face would certainly be carved into it. Carolyn writes the longest running blog on solo and small practice, MyShingle.com, is the author of Solo by Choice: How to Be the Lawyer You Always Wanted to Be, and has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to leveraging technology for solo practitioners and small law firms.
