What challenges do you face as a solo or small firm practitioner?
Bring a professional challenge to The Solution Room and receive confidential advice and support from your peers—and give it in return!
The Solution Room is a powerful session that will engage you, connect you with your peers in a small group setting, and provide answers to your most pressing challenges from fellow solo and small firm attorneys.
Join us and:
- You’ll have the opportunity to receive advice and support from your peers on a professional problem or challenge you face in your practice.
- You’ll meet and build connections with four new peers through sharing your group’s challenges, advice, and support.
- You’ll discover the broad range of peer experience available to you during the evening session and learn how to tap it for your benefit.
This program is designed for those who have been in solo or small firm law practice for at least six months, to those with 20+ years of experience. To ensure that a broad range of experience levels are present, registration in each experience category may be limited.
Your presence matters! Late arrival or early departure will affect other participants' experience. Because this is an interactive, peer-based program, please plan to arrive promptly, and stay for the duration of the session.
