Starting and growing a law firm is a life-long journey composed of a series of significant and far-reaching decisions.  You journey will impact literally hundreds, if not thousands, of people.  You will invest substantial amounts of time, effort, energy, emotion, and money over the life that a firm or practice exists.  But just as important are the decisions and processes of ethically and successfully transitioning out of a practice.  And at some point, you will transition out.  Whether and how you plan for that eventuality is just as important as your original decision to start a practice. 

Join SC Bar Risk Management Director Nichole Davis and a distinguished and accomplished faculty who will offer unerring guidance which will provide you with the wisdom, tools, and perspective you need so that you can begin now to put a plan in place for closing or transitioning out of your law practice.  This important program is not only for those who are actively considering a transition but is in fact as much for those who are just beginning a practice or firm.  Whether you are a brand-new legal entrepreneur, or are a seasoned veteran of many campaigns, this is a seminar that will transform your thinking on this critical subject.

This seminar is an intermediate level program.
