Committee on Lawyers in Transition
2010 Career Development Series – Session Three
Opening Your Own Firm:
The Things They Never Told You and What You Forgot To Ask
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Many great programs and books are available on the basic requirements for starting a solo or small law practice. Still, all experienced solo or small firm lawyers have lists of questions they wish they had asked, or things they never realized were important, until several years after opening their firms.
A panel of solo and small firm lawyers who successfully opened and maintain their practices will share what they learned “the hard way” with tips that will help smooth the way to getting your practice off to a good start.
The program is free to all attorneys, but pre-registration is required. Materials will be forwarded to all registrants, along with the web access code and link to view the program. The program will be broadcast live from Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp LLP, Office of Committee Chair, Lauren J. Wachtler, Esq. If you are in the New York City area, and would like to attend the live session in person, use the online registration link.
If you are unable to participate in the LIVE webcast, the recorded archive will be available online and posted at the Committee’s website atwww.nysba.org/LawyersinTransition
