Keeping a law firm running for 10,15, 20 years is an incredible achievement. Especially when you consider two important facts:
- According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 50% of all new businesses survive five years or more, and about one-third survive 10-years or more.
- Law school never prepared you to run a productive profitable sustainable business.
In fact, you were conditioned to accept and tolerate overwork as normal. It might not even occur to you that you can do things differently.

Moshe Amsel and I share a mission to change the way lawyers practice. I’m doing it through my signature course. He decided to develop an entire summit to help lawyers be more productive and profitable. I was delighted to be invited as one of the founding Featured Speakers.

Maximize your Summit Experience
I love being introduced to the cream of the crop when I attend a Summit. It’s so efficient except for one part I’ll talk about in a minute.
I like to Pre-select the sessions that I definitely want to attend live because it cuts down on decision fatigue and adds fewer meetings to my calendar.
To make your Law Firm Growth Summit experience even better, I developed this list of sessions I’d recommend for established law firm owners over 10 years.
Get the free Playbook now and you’ll also get a free ticket to the Summit. (I’m throwing in a little treat, too***)
Have you noticed that there’s not much training for mature business owners? That’s why I love to highlight great training.
Every speaker in the Summit has practice-changing systems to share but if you’re time-starved, attend these sessions:
I believe that small tweaks can have a huge impact (and are easier to start with!)
Revisit what you think you know about the people you serve in your law firm. Attend- Think Like a Legal Services Consumer. Things have changed!
Love the one you’re with! I’m in favor of increasing wallet-share with your existing clients. They already like you! Attend- How to Double Your Case Files without Spending Another Cent
The message I got in law school was, ‘Good lawyers don’t need to sell themselves’. Did you hear that too? I had to have SEVEN coaches to learn how to comfortably convey the value of my mentoring services.
If someone gave you a step-by-step plan to get clients you’d follow it, right? Attend: 7 Sales Steps for 2020: Lock in Repeatable, Scalable Law Firm Growth and stop overthinking.
You have tons of experience and knowledge to pass along so why not monetize it? This is a nice way to get more value out of your legal knowledge. Attend- How to Create a Revenue-Generating Online Course for Your Firm Without the Hassle
Tech & Processes
Say it with me, Technology is my friend! Having the right systems and people are priceless when you are starting out, but they are critical when you want to scale to the next level. Each time you uplevel, you need to adjust your systems.
If it’s been a while since you reviewed your systems, attend Crush Chaos in our Business to Make More Money to determine what you need to upgrade.
Knowing your workflow makes it easier to convey it to your paralegal and other legal staff. Attend Take the Work out of Workflow- How to Map and Improve your Processes so you’ll be ready to create Project Legends with me.
Leadership and Team Development
This is my JAM!! Understanding how to lead is the most underrated business skill for lawyers. Of course, I want you to join me for my session, Find the Right Paralegal to Grow your Law Firm, Even if You’ve Struck Out Before. I’m super excited to share my proven system for getting a great paralegal who is aligned with you and your mission.
You should attend every speaker in this category because getting your mindset and personal development right has a long-term, positive impact on your business, especially if you have trouble letting go. (and, frankly, what lawyer doesn’t?)
Money is the lifeblood of any business. You can survive without knowing all the financials, but if you want to thrive, you really need help.
Don’t miss the presentation from our host, Moshe Amsel, on Planning for Profits So You Can Control Life Again. I’m a big Profit First fan. If you haven’t been paying yourself first, you’re missing out!
No one explains the financial basics of running a business. You sort of figure it out or not on your own. Law Firm Finances: The Key to Your Law Firm’s Survival Now will fill in the gaps for you.
