The Greatest Minnesota Practice Series - Part 3 Exiting Greater Minnesota Practice

It was common not that many years ago for members of a small law firm to almost seamlessly sell their practices to associates of the firm or sole practitioners to sell their practices to an established lawyer/firm or to a new lawyer seeking to start a practice with an existing “book of business.” Not anymore. There seem to be no accepted formulas for solo-small lawyers to exit their practices, especially in rural areas gracefully.
This presentation is a dialogue between Pat Costello, an experienced lawyer from Lakefield, Minnesota, with a well-established estate administration practice, and Dennis O’Toole, an equally seasoned lawyer from Grand Rapids, Minnesota, with substantial experience in small business acquisitions and sales.
Pat and Dennis are long-term members of the MSBA Greater Minnesota Practice Council, which has made solving the difficulties in exiting Greater Minnesota law practices a high priority.  
Expect a spirited discussion of the frustrations Dennis and Pat have seen among their colleagues on this subject, outlining accepted models and innovative suggestions to help to find solutions to this challenging problem. They will ask participants to forward questions and ideas to help find solutions to a growing problem.
