Taking the leap to depart from your current position to establish your own law practice may seem overwhelming. You may be concerned about leaving behind a high salary, sophisticated work, extensive resources, a prime office location, and a diverse client base. It can be frightening to think about losing all those benefits even if you are wholly dissatisfied with your professional lot in life. In this webinar, former Barclay Damon attorney Katie Markert speaks to the planning process that goes into founding your own law firm, which will highlight the following topics:

  • Creating your business plan
  • Ethical obligations and fiduciary duties during the notice period
  • The first 6-months in business
