This course is a series of videos, supported by various templates, that will guide you through the process of setting up your law firm, from deciding whether to incorporate as a limited company or LLP, to writing your business plan, applying for insurance and getting authorised by the SRA.
But once you've got a launch date, the hard work really begins. I share everything I've learned about getting clients, managing a practice, building a team and designing your tech stack, so you don't have to make the same mistakes I did.
I also talk about the challenges of life as a founder. From nurturing your mindset to managing stress and imposter syndrome, success requires much more than simply growing your firm. You will also need to grow as an individual and invest time in yourself.
Each module contains a video where I run through the topic in detail, talking about everything I've learned and that I wish I'd known when I started Stephenson Law.
This course companion supplements the videos by giving you access to the templates and additional information that I would've found useful when I started Stephenson Law, including a list of tech recommendations.
