You became a lawyer for one main reason: to practice law. Yet, if you're a solo or small-firm attorney, you've no doubt realized that there's so much more to running a successful law practice than managing a case load.
Law school doesn't cover the "business side" of managing and scaling a law practice, and the 2019 Clio Legal Trends Report shows that this gap in education affects many practicing attorneys.
Despite 92% of lawyers reporting confidence in their legal skills, just 53% report confidence in their business skills.
Additionally, 76% of attorneys say they're overworked, and 69% say they have no business training at all.
It's no wonder 93% of lawyers say law school didn't prepare them for running the business side of their law practice.
We're here to help you be a better business owner and operator. We're here to make the business side of your law firm run as smoothly and effectively as the legal side.
