Focus Is on Solo, Small Firm Practices
Solo and small law firm practitioners got a conference of their own last week. The Nebraska State Bar Association, in conjunction with the Iowa State Bar, presented a three-day conference at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Council Bluffs last Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The event gave participants the opportunity to attend a CLE geared directly to their type of practice, earning up to 11 CLE hours.
Session topics included everything from practice management software to social media and marketing, as well as insights to “small firms, big markets” and buying or selling a practice. Speakers included many Omaha attorneys. The opening session entitled, “Tweets, Bleats, Blogs and Chats: Ethics in the Cloud” featured speaker Dustin Cole of Attorneys Master Class. There were breakout sessions all day Friday and Saturday addressing recruiting, technology, introductions to Casemaker and Fastcase and more. Sponsors included Mercer Insurance, Clio and P&L Technology.
