Don’t Plan to Fail. Don’t Lose What You’ve Built. Get Strategic Law Firm Appraisal and Succession Services Today.

Winston Churchill once said, “He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”

Without a formal succession plan in place, a failure to plan during your later years in practice will inevitably create problems for the people you’ve loved and cared about during your legal career.

  • Your loved ones: Your grieving spouse or executor of your will—who likely have no legal training—will need to clean up what you leave behind. They’ll be forced to move forward blindly or to pay dearly to get the help of trained advisors.
  • Your heirs: Once the dust settles, there’ll likely be nothing for your heirs to recoup. How willing are you to leave your heirs empty-handed?
  • Your firm’s lawyers and staff: Your trusted team has been the bedrock of your practice. You’ve been able to count on them, but they may be plunged into uncertainty with your loss.
  • Your clients: Without you, your clients will need new counsel. Do you want to leave them without guidance, or help them find someone they can trust?

These people deserve better — and so do you. Stop planning to fail and get started on your law firm succession plan.

Exit Strategies for Retiring Lawyers

Ensure a Strategic Exit

In addition to protecting the people you care about, planning helps you, too. You’ve worked hard to build your practice; a strategic exit allows you to preserve your legacy rather than just fade away. You’ve invested in your practice; a strategic exit allows you to extract some value from it rather than leaving money on the table. Perhaps most importantly, taking control of your exit rather than leaving it to chance will give you peace of mind so you can enjoy the rest of your career.

There are several options available for you to strategically exit the legal profession:

Your choice will depend on your unique circumstances and needs, but you don’t have to make it alone. With years of experience helping lawyers successfully transition out of practice, Roy will provide the support you need to make the right plan — and put it into motion.

Learn How Much Your Law Practice Is Worth

The first step to reaping the rewards of your law practice is to understand what your practice is worth. After that, you need to know who the optimal buyers are.

  • If you have lawyers already working for you, are they capable of continuing your legacy or will they run it into the ground?
  • If you’re a solo attorney, where do you turn to find the best buyers? And once you’ve found a buyer, do you know how to structure the deal?

Unsure of how to best answer these questions? That’s where working with an expert attorney coach and consultant like Roy helps. He can answer all these questions and lead you down the right law firm succession path.

  • Preserve confidentiality
  • Receive expert advice
  • Evaluate the most important abilities of potential successor candidates
  • Secure the most favorable terms that work best for you
  • Avoid delays by keeping the transition on course
  • Keep your attention focused on practicing law
  • Stop worrying about who will represent your clients after retiring
  • Exit the profession with confidence

Think You Can Go This Alone? Practice What You Preach!

Stop your instinctive lawyer self-talk of, "Yeah, I know I need a succession plan, but this doesn't seem too complicated. I can figure it out myself." You already know the problems created when your own clients think that way. It’s time to practice what you preach, especially if you’ve pushed off planning and you’re well into your 60s or 70s.

Remember, you don’t know what you don’t know. As your clients rely on you for your practice expertise, you can rely on Roy's decades of legal experience and more than a dozen years of law firm succession planning consulting to help secure your peace of mind and the best exit strategy for your firm and clients.

I just turned seventy and own a small firm with a seven figure corporate practice. There were a lot of moving parts as I was trying to determine my best exit strategy and I knew I couldn’t do it alone. Roy quickly grasped the nature of my practice and provided an easy to understand appraisal of its value and suggested next steps. I was extremely pleased with his services. He did a great job!
