Starting a law practice is a dream or else a necessity for most lawyers.
It must be as in Australia, somewhere between 70 to 80% of lawyers practice as sole practitioners!
But wanting to start a law practice and actually setting one up are two vastly different things.
Many want to set up a law firm but don’t know what to actually do nor how to do it.
The range of legal and business related things to do, can indeed dissuade and overwhelm.
What business structure to use, where to base yourself, what areas of law to practise are all valid issues to consider.
