Live Zoom webinar presented by Mindi Wells, Wells Law, Columbus, OH, and moderated by Bill Curphey. Course number and CLE credit pending approval. Solo & Small Firm Section members register for only $50, and all registrants have 90-day, on-demand access. Registration opens soon.
DESCRIPTION: Many law firms, more especially solo and smaller firms, do not have a succession plan in place for the continued operation or wind-down of their law firms. Lack of planning for what happens next—whether the change is from the loss of the solo attorney, loss of a partner, sale by founding attorneys, retirement or other unanticipated events—can throw a firm, its clients, employees, and business colleagues into a nosedive. Join us for this workshop on the fundamentals of succession planning for law firms of all sizes.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why you need to start planning for your exit now—even if it is years away.
- What to consider in your succession plan.
- How to get started now.
- Who you need to get involved.
- Whether you need an Inventory Attorney.
