In a booming economy, running a successful law practice can feel effortless. The engine chugs along–often with only minor supervision. But when the economy changes and inflation comes into play, the practice model must also evolve.
This episode of Great Practice, Great Life explores how to maintain a well-oiled machine when attorneys and practice employees alike are struggling to overcome increasing expenses and stagnant wages amidst inflation.
