May 19th, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST

Learn how to build a reliable support network of colleagues, consultants, and mentors to help your law firm succeed

Proper research and planning are integral to the success of any law firm, but it’s also equally important to have a reliable network of people you can turn to when you need help and advice along the way.

This session is specifically geared towards helping lawyers build their own support system. Hear the stories of our panelists who built a strong network and learn more about:

  • How you can get support from other lawyers in your community
  • Why you should enlist the help of virtual assistants, staff and consultants to help you build your business
  • How training and development—whether it’s your own or for your employees—plays a major part in creating a support system

Tune in to know what resources and relationships our panelists wish they had known about early on in their legal careers—so that you can avoid the same mistakes.
