Starting and Managing a Solo Law Practice: Business, Legal and Ethical Issues, Part I
When you decide to “hang out your shingle” and start a solo practice, you are an entrepreneur, just like someone starting a tech company or other new venture, and you face many of the same business, legal and tax challenges that entrepreneurs face. It’s a regulated business, of course, and you must operate your practice ethically and professionally, but it’s a business nonetheless. It’s impossible to commit malpractice or an ethical violation if you don’t have any clients . . . 😊. In part one of this fast-paced, two part presentation, hosted by a leading legal author, columnist and media personality who has operated a solo law practice out of his home for the past 25 years, you will learn the basics of starting and running a successful law practice.
