Having helped thousands of attorneys launch their firms, Marc Breakstone and David W. White Jr. of Breakstone, White & Gluck PC, will host the Massachusetts Bar Association's "How to Start and Run a Successful Solo or Small Firm Practice Conference" on May 29.

Participants will learn the mechanics of setting up a small firm or solo practice, the logistics of running it, and best practices to successfully market it. Specific topics include:

  • Analyzing the costs and benefits
  • Scouting sources of business before making the move
  • Technology
  • Case selection and client relations
  • Working efficiently and profitably

"I was considering starting my own practice and attended to learn about the 'Traps for the Unwary,'" said 2013 attendee Scott Peterson.

"I learned much more, including the gold standards for office technology, billing, marketing and social media. Before you take the leap, attend this seminar."

This program will include a continental breakfast and lunch.
