Course Description

When you run your own practice or a small law firm, you are more than just a lawyer. You're also an entrepreneur, albeit in a professional service business with extremely high (and sometimes complicated) ethical requirements. In this fast-paced, humorous presentation taught by Cliff Ennico, a solo practitioner with forty years' experience in advising entrepreneurs, you will learn to master the rules of ethics that apply to the business of law.

  2. Participate in lawyer referral networks
  3. Communicate ethically with clients, especially via email
  4. Manage your clients' expectations, and your time
  5. Write great retainer letters
  6. Avoid billing disputes with your clients
  7. Protect your clients' privacy using digital technology
  8. Preserve your clients' files and records
  9. Prepare your practice for eventual sale
