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.
Also, our here are links to the #FinanciallyLegal episodes about subscription legal practices with Jonathan Tobin and Kim Bennett, respectively. You can also find a link to the first part in our five-part series about subscription legal services, What are subscription legal services? here.
