How to Start and Run a Successful Solo or Small-Firm Practice

Course #: LPA08
Thursday, Oct. 25, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Sheraton Needham Hotel, 100 Cabot St., Needham

Join us for a comprehensive, one-day seminar that features practical advice on what you need to become a successful lawyer-entrepreneur.

  • Do you dream of starting your own practice or “hanging your shingle”?
  • Have the recent law firm mergers and shifts affected you?
  • Are you re-evaluating your career and thinking about striking out on your own?
  • Are you a law student with a plan to go straight into your own practice?

Our faculty of experienced lawyers will provide guidance and insight on every aspect of starting a law firm while sharing practice pointers on growing their own firms.

This lively program, which has been one of the most popular and valuable MBA seminars to date, includes a working, networking lunch for a chance to meet with colleagues who can help get you started.
