About This Course
While daunting, opening a law firm, whether as a sole practitioner or with several other attorneys, is the easiest part of the process. The management and running of a firm is where the complexities, and seemingly insurmountable hurdles lie.
Held to a higher standard than other businesspeople, attorneys still need to make a profit. This CLE course will cover the Rules of Professional Conduct and ethical issues lawyers must follow when running a practice and how competing interests can be managed for success.
The course will explain how to manage partners, clients and vendors for the best interests of all concerns and also cover pandemic-related management concerns. The course will begin with an ethics guide to law firm management and then review provisions of the RPC’s that serve to guide attorney conduct.
The course will conclude with tips and strategies for long-term stability, happiness and growth amongst employees and COVID-related issues and how they may be addressed.
