APP LogoThe inaugural ATL Academy for Private Practice in New York City was so popular that we’ve decided to take it to the West Coast. On June 22, we will be in San Diego, California, where APP panelists will offer practical solutions and expert insight on meeting the challenges of starting and optimizing a solo or small-firm practice. From turning the ins and outs of craft beer law and immigration law into a successful practice to starting a paperless office, whether you are a Biglaw attorney seeking to break out, an entrepreneurial solo looking to innovate and grow, or a law student aiming to bring value to potential employers, this event is for you.
