The Sole Practitioner and Small Firm Section Chair Scott D. Goldberg.
The General Practice, Solo & Small-Firm section changes name, clarifies mission
The newly renamed "The Sole Practitioner and Small Firm Section"
will focus on addressing the issues, challenges and concerns that
more specifically affect sole practitioners and members of small
firms. The section, led by Chair Scott D. Goldberg, is looking
forward to having an active discussion (listserv) on My Bar Access,
sharing information and providing support to its section members
and presenting its annual symposium.
Goldberg presented the bases for changing the name of the
General Practice, Solo & Small-Firm Section at the Nov. 15,
2012 House of Delegates meeting. "The section council believes the
newly adopted name more clearly reflects our section's membership
as lawyers who concentrate our practices as opposed to having a
general practice, and it makes a distinction between our purposes
and goals to those of the Law Practice Management Section and the
Young Lawyers Division, for example," said Goldberg.
Look for more details about the section's name change in the
March Lawyers Journal.
