Conference Room, Hosted by Macquarie
Ground Floor, 235 St Georges Terrace Perth

Starting a new law firm is a step into the unknown. It will require nerve and the ability to lead yourself and others on a new adventure.

Why take such a step? What is it like? How can you get into the right mind-set for success?

An experienced panel, led by Chair Glen McLeod, will walk you through the thought processes and planning that needs to take place to start up a successful practice and share tips on:

  • finding and keeping the best people
  • marketing, organisational development, administration and accounting
  • basic management issues
  • leaving the big firm and going at it alone – the sole practitioner
  • realistic timeframes
  • IT and website
  • the distributed virtual service provider
  • financing the venture
  • policies for charging clients
  • outsourcing issues

Attendees are encouraged to send through questions ahead of time to the following email:

Refreshments will be hosted by Macquarie after the seminar.
