Legal Practice Succession – Understanding the value of your practice 2024


In this Introductory overview Rob Knowsley will address practical considerations for owners intending to exit small-medium firms, and intending purchasers. In New Zealand and Australia these size firms make up the very large majority of all law firms.

There is the opportunity to increase awareness of how to de-stress the whole process, for seller and potential buyers and prepare for a strong sale value. This is particularly important if attendees know that there is a growing awareness that a significant number of departing partners have unrealistic inflated views of what they should be paid.

The value of a partner’s interest in a legal practice has been a fraught subject for as long as your presenter has been in the Legal Profession, and almost certainly a lot longer. The key reason is a paucity of knowledge of the legal business financials, in both sellers and buyers.

The webinar content will include everything your presenter considers relevant... drawn from his long exposure to the profession, including representing the best interests of sellers and buyers of practice interests right up to the present day.


Attendees will complete the webinar with an increased awareness of the raft of issues that go to determining both what is a fair value for a departing Principal’s interest, and how to ensure the available options for getting paid are optimised.
