Law Practice for Sale

Sell? Buy? Hold? That has been the lawyers’ dilemma during the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. COVID-19 has proven to be an unforeseen accelerant in the law practice sale marketplace. Many senior solo and small-firm practitioners are motivated to sell their practices while less-seasoned lawyers recognize buying opportunities to build their existing practices.

Simultaneously, Robert V. Schaller writes in his January Illinois Bar Journal article, “Law Practice for Sale,” the COVID-19 pandemic has incentivized other lawyers to purchase law practices for sale, including both contingent-fee practices and hourly-rate practices. Schaller’s article encourages an owner of a law practice to take a step back and consider all the options available to them regarding the sale of their practices; he also offers plenty of advice for younger lawyers who might be interested in taking over another practice.
