Thank You to Our Sponsors!  (Click HERE to see our sponsors)

Dedicated to YOU, the solo or small firm practitioner, this conference is curated to address topics and issues you face running your practice. The Small Firms section is the largest in the Delaware State Bar Association and represents the vital and growing segment of Delaware’s legal community.  Our topics have been selected with input from the section to help attorneys address the unique challenges they face and to learn from experts and peers about running an effective, efficient and sustainable practice. 

This year, the conference will include a ride along experience with driving experts of the Dover Motor Speedway! Sit back and hold tight as you ride shotgun in the passenger seat or back seat with a professional driver for 3 laps of “Monster Mile”. This exclusive experience is built in to the cost of the CLE and will immediately follow the conference!

Growth Mindset: How your firm can grow sustainably and intelligently- In order to get your firm to its ideal state, you must examine both the business of law and the practice of law as well as successfully implement scalable systems and processes that can grow with your firm. It’s important to honestly assess your firm now and envision your firm of the future. Developing solid Standard Operating Procedures, generating and analyzing critical reports, and intentional automation are keys to firm growth.
