Running a solo practice or small firm isn’t easy. There’s marketing, office management, client intake, networking, office technology maintenance, invoicing, accounting. Oh yeah, and there’s the part where you actually practice law.
Most solos I know didn’t get into law to run a small business, but to practice law. For many solos and small firms, handling all of the firm’s management isn’t usually fun. It’s time-consuming and prevents you from spending time working on your cases. But, for solos in particular, hiring the extra staff isn’t always in the cards.
To more effectively run your practice, when you can, outsource it.
