You entered this business to practice law - but as a practice founder, you must not forget that it is a business. Like any other entrepreneur you have an entity to manage. There is freedom in being your own boss but, with that freedom comes increased responsibility. There is paperwork to file. There can be employees to manage. There are taxes to be paid. And, who's going to stock the candy jar? In this session, you'll learn what you have to look forward to as a new business owner and what you must be prepared for.

Pricing, billing and collecting can cause problems and headaches for lawyers starting a solo practice.  Gain insight on how to successfully manage these practice issues and how to turn these potential headaches into genuinely effective marketing opportunities.

Topics include:

Taking care of yourself:
  - Accessing benefits
  - Acquiring malpractice insurance + business insurance
  - Managing your website - content management, maximizing search engine optimization and tracking and analyzing your website traffic

Taking care of your clients:
