“You have to look at your own micro area. Not just the whole state or country, but what’s happening in the city or town or region that you’re in.”—Paul Floyd

This week, Sam chats with Paul Floyd, a lawyer who advises solosmall attorneys about business issues, about how an attorney can leave a small firm in a small town and do so on good terms. Aaron and Sam also discussed how everyday things like keycards and paper checks can be far less secure than you think they are.

Paul Floyd is a partner at Wallen-Friedman & Floyd, P.A. Paul is known as a “lawyer’s lawyer” because he provides practical and legal advice to solosmall attorneys about business issues, including strategic planning, succession planning, governance structure, and lawyer departure issues. He also represents small business owners in a number of industries.

Paul is President-Elect of the Hennepin County Bar Association.
