2011 JANUARY

A NOTE FROM THE SLFC DIRECTOR

"Whatever you do or dream you can do - begin it.
Boldness has genius and power and magic in it."

íV Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Dear Solo and Small Firm Practitioners,

As 2011 begins, the month of January happily allows us to start anew. Whether you are just starting your own law practice or trying to improve your existing business, you can do so now, with the renewed energy and enthusiasm. We often start the New Year with an overwhelming number of resolutions that cannot be met. Instead of doing so, it may be better to pick three major items on which you can focus during the first six months of 2011.


A New Member Benefit from OfficeLinks:

Office Space. OfficeLinks.

Four Prime NYC locations (Grand Central West, Bryant Park, Wall Street, Chelsea). Choose from single, team, window and interior offices all supported with fast and secure enterprise grade technology. Affordable office space. Flexible Terms.

New York City Bar Members receive a FREE TRIAL plus: 10% discount on Virtual Offices, 50% off the first meeting room booking and 20% thereafter.



New York City Bar Association - Special Announcement!

We are delighted to advise you that the City Bar has expanded its member benefit partnership with Marsh to the sponsored Lawyers Professional Liability Program, underwritten by Zurich in North America. Marsh will serve as the program broker and administrator while Zurich will provide the traditional insurance company functions.

One of the first benefits of this new partnership is for members who practice in Manhattan. Professional liability premiums have been reduced by 25% from what members were previously paying Zurich for this coverage. This is in large part due to favorable loss experience exhibited by Manhattan firms.
