What's the plan?
A good succession plan is crucial for the long-term health of your practice and key to upholding your ethical obligations to clients. And succession plans aren’t just for lawyers contemplating retirement. If you don’t have a succession plan in place, unexpected events like family emergencies, sudden illness, injury, or death can jeopardize your practice and your clients.
Don't leave your clients and your colleagues in a lurch. Join State Bar of Wisconsin Law Practice Assistance Manager Christopher C. Shattuck to learn practical steps you can take to plan for your succession at Law Firm Succession Planning.
