You know what they say about death and taxes. No matter whether you are a newly admitted attorney in a big firm or a solo whose retirement is just around the corner, ALL attorneys need a succession plan. A succession plan will change over the course of a lawyer's career and should take into consideration business continuity, disaster preparedness, practice transition, and closing a law office. Join our expert panel as we discuss ethical responsibilities, how the plan changes over time, and practical realities of creating a plan. We will also discuss a number of options for working with other attorneys through surrogate systems, formal mentor programs, transitioning a practice for sale, and other arrangements. Materials will include checklists and sample forms.

Generously sponsored by CBA Administrators, ABA Retirement Funds, and Alliant Credit Union.
