Hear practical advice from lawyers with first hand experience with buying or selling their law firm. Our panelists will discuss finding a compatible practice, determining fair value of a law practice, hiring a professional to assist with buying or selling, negotiating the purchase price, and considering your payment options. Learn how to prepare your law practice for sale, attract and interview potential candidates, and draft the purchase agreement.
