Finance Basics (Resilient Lawyer Series, MBA)


November 17, 2020 12:00 pm



Finance Basics, part of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Resilient Lawyer Series, will provide an overview of the financial matters involved in starting up and running a law practice. In addition to hearing inspirational stories of successful law firm owners, you will learn about law firm operations, budgeting and considerations for insolvency. You’ll also get recommendations for communicating with clients about fee agreements, drafting ethical fee agreements, handling fee disputes, and protecting yourself against problems by knowing the ins and outs of malpractice insurance.

The Resilient Lawyer Series, launched in October 2020, is a series of programs designed to guide new and experienced attorneys through the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. Through multiple virtual events, our experts will provide a wealth of information to help you start, expand or pivot a practice; break into other practice areas; and otherwise adjust to the current legal landscape.

In a time of unexpected twists and turns, along with related adjustments and adaptations, the Massachusetts Bar Association recognizes that many lawyers throughout the commonwealth are facing less business, layoffs and general job uncertainty.

Become a resilient lawyer and learn new skills and career development techniques to respond to the downturn in business while growing and adapting your practice in the new normal.

This webinar will be hosted using Zoom. Registration is required by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17, to participate in this program. After you register with the MBA, please look for an email from MassBar Education with the Webinar ID and Password. The email will be sent after 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 17.
