Managing a successful solo or small law practice means overcoming many challenges. These days, running a small practice requires many skills in addition to being a good lawyer: one often also needs to be a project manager, technologist, marketer and small business expert.

The State of the US Small Law Firms Study surveyed more than 300 solo and small law firm leaders to find out how they define success, their challenges and what the most successful firms are doing to develop and execute winning strategies.

In this podcast, we discuss the survey findings and what it reveals about the world of today’s solo and small law firm with Karl Florida, managing director, small law firms, Thomson Reuters; and Bob Ambrogi, practicing solo attorney, ABA Journal columnist and creator of the LawSites blog.

FindLaw has published a new white paper that analyzes traffic safety data and its implications for personal injury practices.
