Introducing Law Practice as a Business
Dear friends, I’m happy to announce the publication of my latest book, Law Practice as a Business.
Law Practice as a Business discusses a critical aspect of law-practice business—the business of making money in legal practice. It shares some of the vital business strategies and distinct ideas peculiar to the legal industry. The ideas are presented with clarity of thought and simplicity of language. Hopefully, this keeps you relaxed while activating your logical and innovative mind.
In addition to my knowledge and personal experience, the fundamental business aspects of legal practice discussed in this book also draws from the ideas of well-accomplished legal practitioners and scholars, locally and internationally. Therefore, some of the opinions expressed in the book are authoritative. The ideas are not only authoritative but realistic, with proven degrees of success.
This book is meant to be a source of information, inspiration, and motivation for all categories of lawyers—especially young lawyers—as well as the lay in law, including law students and people in service-based businesses.
