Succession Planning

Continuity, client protection, and emergency preparedness.
The arc of a lawyer’s law practice eventually comes to end. Ideally, the lawyer is ready and transition goes according to plan; readiness also fosters order in the event of an emergency. Our Succession Planning Toolkit and resources can help.


The Succession Planning Toolkit

The State Bar's Law Practice Management Committee has created a brand new Succession Planning Toolkit to help lawyers plan for what's to come. 

In the toolkit, you will find an in-depth discussion of succession steps that move from simple to complex, including the cessation of practice procedures and transition planning.
