Are you a sole practitioner lawyer?

Are you racialized or a woman and living in the Greater Toronto Area?   

Are you looking to connect with other sole practitioners to create a stronger community of practice?  

Have you built your own practice and find it rewarding? What have you learned about effectively building relationships? 

FACL Women’s Committee is pleased to host its first of a 'Series of Suppers' on special topics of interest to our members.  

The first supper topic is ‘Navigating and building relationships as a sole practitioner'.  Understanding how to build strong relationships with the right people can help you develop your business.  The goal is to foster an open discussion and share experiences, best practices and pitfalls to avoid.  Each meal course (every 15-20 mins), we will tackle a different sub theme – e.g. specific strategies in building a book of business and clients; common mistakes to avoid when starting your own practice; and how to innovate in the legal field.  

As food for thought, we are encouraging people to read this recently released book: Entrepreneurial Negotiations, https://www.entrepreneurialnegotiation.com/book.html, or to bring a resource related to the topic to discuss.    

This is an opportunity to meet, discuss common issues of concern, and to explore opportunities for business development.
