Hanging your shingle

NOTE: This meeting has been rescheduled to Thursday, June 3 and will NOT be held on Thursday, June 17 as previously advertised.

If you have ever been interested in opening your own firm, partnership, or simply wanted to know about this process, join the Massachusetts Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division on Thursday, June 3 at 6 p.m. as we present three perspectives on hanging your own shingle. The panelists will discuss topics ranging from how to start your own practice; deciding what business entity to form (partnership, LLC, etc.); and how to keep the business running years later. Additionally, they will discuss what does and does not work. A reception will immediately follow. Please feel free to extend this invitation to other MBA members as well as anyone who might be interested in starting their own practice. We look forward to seeing you there.
