Featuring Roy S. Ginsburg, J.D.
CLE CREDITS: 3.0, including 1.0 ethics
Your successful career is almost over. Do you have a vision of what you want your retirement to look like? Do you have a succession plan in place to help you get there?

You’ve invested a lot of time and effort to build your successful practice. You may be able to now strategically sell it—a valuable asset in and of itself—to enhance your retirement portfolio. It is critical that you know what your practice is worth, who your optimal buyers are and how to find them, as well as how to structure a fair and balanced deal. And if you are a buyer, what practices should you consider purchasing and how much should you pay? Finally, if you work at a firm with multiple owners, does it have a succession plan in place that ensures that your law firm survives?

You only have one opportunity to exit the legal profession. Do it in a manner that is satisfying, enjoyable, maximizes the proceeds you can obtain from your practices and ensures that your valued clients are left in good hands. Don't simply plan to retire. Plan your retirement.
Topics include:
  • When to retire
  • What to do when you retire
  • How to avoid flunking retirement
  • Solo and small firm owner transition strategies
  • Which practice areas have value? Which don’t?
  • How much is your practice worth?
  • Identifying the best successors
  • How to structure the deal the right way
  • Ethical considerations (Rule 1.17A)
  • What to do with all of those closed client files?
  • Firms with multiple owners
  • Best practices to transition leaders
  • Best practices to transition clients
