Retirement planning event for solo and small law firms

Fall 2019 LAIPLA Solo/Small Firm Panel

Loyola Law School

Topic: Retirement Planning for the Solo/Small Firm

Join our LAIPLA Solo/Small Firm Committee luncheon and networking event, which will focus on the timely and important issues of retirement and succession planning for the solo and small firm practitioners.  Our panel of experts will cover a variety of issues germane to these topics, including options and strategies for retirement planning for firm members and succession planning for the firm, including, for example, transferring ownership to a next generation of firm attorneys, selling the firm, and others. Our panelist will also discuss a new state law requirement for firms to provide a workplace retirement savings program, known as CalSavers. The event will also include a structured segment that emphasizes participation from the attendees, with the goal of developing relationships, within the community of solo/small firm IP attorneys.

A selection of sandwiches will be available at 12:15 and we will begin our panel at 12:30.

Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association (provider # 2083) certifies that the Small Firm / Solo Practitioners Fall Program has been approved for MCLE credit by the State Bar of California in the amount of 1.0 hours.
