Customer focus and simplicity among success factors for start-up businesses.
Law school and, often, several years of working at a larger firm prepared you well for a career as a lawyer. You know your area of law, and you’re a good lawyer, but are you prepared for the business of law? If you are launching a solo or small law firm, or growing one, you must have a little business savvy in addition to law smarts. That’s where it helps to follow some simple start-up principles for law firms.
Owning a solo practice or a small firm gives you the leeway to be nimble and to meet the needs of your clients in sometimes non-traditional ways, in much the same way as many innovative tech start-ups that are lauded in the press.
