Is it worth getting a CFE certification as a litigator? Currently working as a prosecutor handling complex frauds. No plans to ever go private again unless it’s as a solo, ideally after getting that sweet pension to vest. Not sure if it’s just a marketing thing or an actual skill set.

I’ve now reached the point in my career where I have the experience, a good client base, and consistent referral sources that I’m ready to leave the small firm I’m with and start my own practice. My preference would be to find a partner and form a partnership because I’d like to have someone to bounce ideas off of and for some social interaction, but if I can’t find the right partner, then I’ll do it alone. Any advice on branching off to start my own firm - whether it be solo or with a partner?
