Originally presented during our 2020 Solo & Small Firm Virtual Conference, August 19-21, 2020.
You went to law school to become a lawyer, and you are a good one, at that. But running a small law firm requires more than being a good lawyer — you must be a good business owner, too. To run a successful business, you need to be able to wear the hats of an accountant, billing manager, client relations manager, and more on top of being the best lawyer possible for your clients. There are many reasons lawyers make bad business owners, but that doesn’t have to be you. In this session, you will learn actionable tips to improve your processes and leverage technology to run a productive, profitable law firm without ever taking your attorney hat off.
