Does global economics affect your law practice? The, perhaps surprising, answer is a resounding ‘Yes’! On this month’s show, host Jared Correia, Law Practice Management Advisor with Mass. LOMAP, welcomes to the Legal Toolkit Susan Cartier Liebel, the Founder & CEO of Solo Practice University®, to address the effect that global economics and changing demographics have on attorneys and their practices. Susan and Jared discuss the present economic downturn in the context of the history of the United States, talk about why it is so important for the modern attorney to apply a client-centric viewpoint and consider potential growth opportunities in a compromised economy.
The downturn in the economy has rattled law firms nationally and internationally, leaving many firms to pick up the pieces. On The Landy Law Letter, host John L. Torvi, from the Herbert H. Landy Insurance Agency of Needham, Massachusetts welcomes Attorney Charles H. Kaplan, a partner in Sedgwick LLP’s New York office, to take a look at the current issues law firms are facing when it comes to labor and employment. John and Charlie discuss the latest business trends in how law firms and attorneys are dealing with the realities of downsizing, employment practices and retirement and what a law firm can do to stay ahead of the game regarding employment practice problems, downsizing or staff cuts.
