It takes a village to build a law firm.
Ken's "Thoughts After Six Years" at Popehat. A lot can happen in six years. Presidents change, kids grow up, cutting-edge technology becomes obsolete (oh wait, that only takes six months). Law firms are established and lessons learned. In this post Ken shares nine solid pieces of start-up advice that he picked up while building his own firm, but the lessons aren't just for lawyers starting out on their own. Any lawyer, whether she's running a firm, an office, or a practice, or working in a firm, or practicing on her own, will benefit from Ken's advice. Because it reminds us that being a lawyer is all about the people who help you succeed: colleagues, clients, peers, mentors, staff. And that's a valuable lesson for all.
