Do You Have an Exit Plan?


If tragedy strikes and you are unable to continue your law practice, who will deal with your clients, their legal matters and your business? What will you leave for your unsuspecting spouse, life partner or business partners to handle? All Arizona lawyers must have some type of “exit” plan to remain in compliance. Even if you aren’t permanently unable to practice, who will handle your clients so that you still have a business when you’re ready to return? And how will you navigate to your exit when you decide to retire? This seminar will explore Rule 41(i) Ariz. R. Sup. Ct., and provide you with a roadmap for creating your own exit plans.
