In Ontario, more than 75% of lawyers work in small or solo practice. Building and operating a small or sole law practice brings a mountain of challenges in a competitive market. Performing, leading, and managing every aspect of the business is unique to legal entrepreneurship and mistakes are common.
Windsor Law has partnered with Schultz Frost LLP to offer a four-day course that will give attendees the skills and resources to launch their solo or start-up practice successfully.
Each day will focus on a different element for a successful practice: The Idea, The Rules, The Innovation, and The Pitch.
The Business of Law: Start as You Plan to Continue course will provide you with information and ideas to help you execute your vision and avoid common pitfalls.
