Back to The 2019 Annual WSBA Solo and Small Firm Conference: A Modern Lawyer's Toolkit

Presented in collaboration with the WSBA Solo and Small Practice Section

This year, we are delighted to feature presenters joining us from near and far to speak about topics focused on building a legal practice in today’s world, modern legal service and business models, and ethics. Discussions will draw from and specifically address the solo and small firm legal practitioner’s experience.

Attendees can also benefit from practical guidance on current issues through a collegial learning atmosphere where networking opportunities abound and are encouraged. 

Some of the highlights of this year’s annual conference include:

  • Evolving you practice based on legal trends;
  • How the recent tax law changes can affect your bottom line;
  • Using virtual assistants so you can run a more efficient business;
  • Employing design thinking to improve processes in your law firm;
  • A discussion of how to strategically grow your small firm.

On Saturday, we are excited to host a few concurrent sessions. Please note that we will be webcasting only the sessions that are scheduled to take place in “Whale Hall”.
