Managing Partner Roundtable: Law Firm Business Structures   (In Person)

OBA Law Practice Management PROGRAM | 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM

Do you have the right business structure for your law firm?  Lawyers can set up their practice through various structures, namely, traditional law firm structures (sole proprietorships, associations and partnerships) or newer law firm structures (professional corporations, limited liability partnerships, multi-disciplinary practices, virtual law firms, or combined firm structures).  How do you determine which structure is the right fit for your practice and partners?  Our discussion will revolve around the various factors you should consider, such as:

  • Unique financial implications
  • Legal implications (provincial laws and regulations)
  • Limitation of potential liability
  • Tax consequences
  • Dynamic of your partners and roles they play
