Surviving an Economic Downturn: Pandemic Proof Your Small Law Firm

1h 1m

Created on July 28, 2020




Can the small law firm model survive in the face of the COVID pandemic and resulting economic downturn? This is the question for small plaintiff law firms and solo attorneys in the personal injury field and similar practice areas around the country.

In addition, the program will cover law practice management issues, including best practices for running a law firm virtually for an extended period of time, valuing your law firm personnel, paralegals, secretaries, and associates, obtaining new clients during the pandemic, and how to become 'lean and mean' in your law practice and streamline your legal work to maximize efficiency.
