While Big Law firms are the most well-known brands in the legal industry, the vast majority of attorneys in private practice (over 60% of them) work in small firms with ten or fewer attorneys. Close to half of all private legal practitioners choose a solo practice as their career and lifestyle.
The day-to-day experiences of these attorneys can vary significantly by practice area. Many find it much more challenging to network with industry peers outside the Big Law structure. In trying times like these, it is even more important for small firm legal professionals to find community and support each other as they continue to work and grow their practices.
Whether you’re currently at a small firm or thinking of striking out on your own, getting advice and guidance from industry insiders is crucial to succeeding in a career path with no set roadmap.
