Selling a Law Practice Should Be Profitable

Ed can help you successfully transfer the value of your practice through a sale, merger, retirement, or breakup, turning your years of effort in building client files and a reputable practice into real money. Thanks to changes in the American Bar Association's Rules of Professional Conduct in 1991, small firms, sole practitioners, and their heirs can now get get paid for the goodwill of their practices.

For those considering selling their practices, Ed offers four options to help you get the most return on the business you’ve built.
