At the end of August, our new law firm will be half a year old. After a decade of practicing law in other peoples’ firms, I have to say, being the owner of the business is even better than I had expected. It’s not fewer hours, has just as many (but different) headaches, and the day to day law is no less challenging than being at a big global law firm.
But the difference is, the hours, headaches and challenges are mine to own, and mine to prioritize according to client needs rather than according to big infrastructure timelines and priorities.
But then there’s all the administrative work.
