The Solo and Small Firm Section of the Bar Association of San Francisco will host its fifth annual Solo and Small Firm Conference on January 28, 2021. The conference is planned as a virtual event in light of the various shelter-in-place orders. This year’s conference theme is Larger Than Coronavirus.
The keynote speaker is Stephanie Everett, president of Lawyerist, co-host of The Lawyerist Podcast, and the chief coach of Lawyerist Lab. She is the co-author of Lawyerist’s popular book, The Small Firm Roadmap. She was awarded the 2020 ABA TechShow Women of Legal Tech Award. She practiced at a big law firm for five years before co-founding her own firm, which grew from two lawyers to twenty in seven years.
This year’s conference will offer several diverse Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs covering topics such as law firm management, remote practice tools, legal ethics, employment/HR issues during COVID-19, client diversity and marketing, and litigation funding.
Past Solo and Small Firm Section conferences have drawn large crowds of nearly 150 attorneys and have provided full-day opportunities for furthering continuing education and building camaraderie among members of the San Francisco solo and small firm community. The 2021 conference will continue this tradition by providing an informative and engaging setting for business networking and for attorneys to improve their knowledge about law firm practice management. Although in-person networking may not be available, BASF will facilitate a virtual networking and happy hour event following the conclusion of the conference breakout sessions.
The BASF community is a pillar of the legal profession representing individuals and organizations in nearly every imaginable type of legal matter and area of the law.
This year’s conference committee co-chairs are John B. Lough, Jr., and Ryan Stahl of Scherer Smith & Kenny.
The conference often sells out, so secure your spot now and register early! Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
