Open your own law firm and let it grow


29 June 2017 - 01 July 2017

During this seminar lawyers who have successfully established their own law firms will share their practical experiences. An expert speaker will moderate the sessions and provide practical tips and advice. In order to bring the discussion to a successful conclusion, the corporate counsels will share their insights on the best ways to establish and maintain a successful collaboration.

Young AIJA lawyers who are just about to venture into self-employment will be provided with a checklist of dos and don’ts, current owners of independent law firms will find a network of like-minded lawyers to exchange their ideas and experience and to find new inspiration on how to develop their business.
