Lawyers can usually think of lots of possible reasons why trying something new in their practice is “against the rules.” Megan Zavieh is a California state bar defense attorney (who lives in Georgia!) and she’s not messing around. Instead, she’s launching a subscription legal services offering, cheering regulatory changes related to non-lawyer ownership and breaking down the rules around shifting credit card processing fees to clients or selling your law practice. Megan’s got some great takes on all of this plus how to run an ethical, forward-looking firm in the time of COVID and beyond.
We discussed the research that we at Gravity Legal have done on surcharging, i.e. shifting the cost of credit card processing to clients, here.
Finally, here’s a link to our recent episode on buying and selling a legal practice with Tom Lenfestey from the Law Practice Exchange.
