Selling Your Law Practice: The Profitable Exit Strategy
"There has been little written about how to evaluate and sell a law practice, much less how to close a practice. With this book, Ed Poll has stepped up to fill that void."
Close your practice for a profit.
Remember when your law practice was just starting out, how difficult it was to build your client base from scratch?
No one knew you. No one trusted you. No one heard of your name. It's amazing you were ever able to get those first clients. But you did.
Now that you've built this solid reputation and name in your community, have you ever stopped to wonder how much it could be worth?
After all, if a doctor will pay a hefty premium to buy an already established medical practice, why can't you sell your legal practice for a profit?
Well, the good (and perhaps surprising) news is: now you can.
In the old days, you didn't sell your practice - you simply closed it. There were no other options.
Thanks to a new law governing the sale of law practices in over 40 states, you can now sell your law practice just like any other business asset.
You may have thought your dusty books and old office furniture were all you could sell. (If you were lucky)
Now you're sitting on an asset that could be worth as much as one and a half times your yearly revenue or more.
Just think of the extra financial cushion selling your practice will add to your retirement. Or the added security it will create for your spouse, children, and grandchildren when they no longer have your income to depend on.
However you decide to use your new wealth, it's all the more enjoyable because you didn't even expect it!
I can't answer that off the top of my head. It depends on a number of factors: the value of your client files, your location, how well you can negotiate, etc. (All of this I will teach you!)
I can tell you this: Using the system I created, I've been able to get some of the attorneys I consult with up to six-times their original asking price.
This can translate into a cash gain anywhere from $25,000-$300,000 depending on all the factors I mentioned above.
You might be thinking, "There's no way I can possibly find an attorney who will pay that much for my good name." Well, as someone who buys and sells practices with clients, I can tell you the market is immense. Your potential buyers include:
But why give it away when you can get something for it?
After all, you're giving buyers something of considerable value. You're giving them credibility and the power of your good name. You're also giving them the opportunity to retain some of your loyal clients. (Consider the cash value of this alone!)
You know you worked hard to build up these assets. You and your family sacrificed for them.
Now here's how you can guarantee you get the money you deserve.
After years of helping attorneys get top dollar for their practices, I have created a system for uncovering the hidden value of your law practice, so you can sell it at a significant profit when it's time to retire, close, or move.
This system will not only show you how to attach a realistic price tag to your practice, but it leads you step by step through the process of finding a buyer and negotiating for thousands above your expected price.
For many years, you couldn't get this system anywhere else (unless you had $12,500 to hire me as your personal negotiator).
So, I decided to lay it all out for attorneys like you in a comprehensive, easy-to-read, bullet-point guide called Selling Your Law Practice: The Profitable Exit Strategy.
It's really more than a book; it's a kit that comes with a FREE bonus CD-ROM containing all the downloadable sale and non-disclosure agreements, client account forms, financial worksheets, and sample letters you will need to complete your sale, hassle free.
Plus - it comes with an hour of FREE coaching from me. This means you can call me anytime with questions about using my system, and I will answer them personally for you.
Normally, you would pay $500 for one hour of coaching with me.
I offer it for FREE not because I believe you will be confused by my system, but because I know your situation is different from everyone else's, and I want to help you customize my system so it works best for you.
