The Benefits of a Virtual Law Firm and How to Build One

Learn how to grow a firm with team members dispersed in different locations.

Distributed workforces, aka virtual law firms, are here to stay in the legal profession. Pre-pandemic, virtual firms were often considered too new-age for most law firm owners with thoughts like "We need excessive office space to be legit for team and clients." That concept has changed. Now, are all firms going to go/stay fully remote? Nope. Most will end up in a hybrid status where office space is used with team members who are not coming into the office each day. Law firms around the country continue to figure out how to effectively grow a law firm while managing the ongoing effects of the pandemic that have caused many Americans, including those that law firms employ, to think about work differently. This course will cover all the ins and outs of how to grow a firm with team members dispersed in different locations. Topics include managing remote and onsite team members, having the right tech in place, marketing your practice with creative office space usage, and more.
