Starting your own practice isn’t something they teach in law school. Join me as I sit down with legal professionals to hear firsthand accounts of just how they did it.
In this episode, Neil and Jeremy discuss:
- Lessons for moving into your own solo firm from a big law firm.
- Digging deep into the tools that you have.
- Challenges of opening a new, solo firm.
- Implementing processes in your law firm (even if you are the only lawyer right now).
- The tools that we have now, compared to a decade ago, to facilitate the transition to a small firm are numerous and make it easier than ever before.
- Give yourself permission to play a different game when growing your business.
- Consider different options for growing your law firm. What works for one firm, may not be what is best for your firm.
- Virtual support (both software and staffing) is more affordable than you think, and will help you to expand your firm and allow you to do what you do best.
“It’s not as hard as you think. I don’t think it’s for everybody, but it didn’t turn out to be as hard as I thought it would be. That’s not to say I don’t have plenty of challenges, but the things that I was worried about as I was peering over the precipice didn’t turn out to be such significant obstacles.” — Jeremy Baker
