ONLINE MEETING: Small is Beautiful: The Economics of Small Law Firms and the Impact of Legal Tech
This meeting is being hosted by the General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section.

Speaker(s): Jeremy Hessing-Lewis, Small Law
Time: Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 12:00pm - 1:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

How much money do you make from your law practice? Jeremy Hessing-Lewis' presentation will address the economic reality of small and solo practices in Canada. From the trade-offs of leveraged services models (staffing-up) to increased profit margins and higher matter volumes made possible from new and emerging legal technology, we will address many sensitive topics within the business of law. [Spoiler: stop "innovating" with your line item pricing and make your services cheaper]. We will close with a set of practical tips for building better small firms post-COVID.
