Staffing for Solo and Small Firms: Assembling an Effective Team

If you are a solo or small firm, hiring and onboarding staff can often feel like trying to fit jigsaw pieces together from different puzzles. Tack that on to an already busy schedule, and it can be an incredibly difficult process to find the right fit for your firm. The Professional Liability Fund has compiled a panel of speakers to provide tips for how to assemble your team with the goal of improving your law firm operations.

Watch PLF Practice Management Attorney Rachel Edwards, Legal NW Staffing agency recruiter Anneke Haslett, and attorney Kristen Williams, a partner at Williams Weyand Law LLC in McMinnville discuss the Great Resignation and common reasons for wanting to hire staff. They also address what to consider before hiring, such as proper classification of the position, salary, and primary responsibilities. Additional topics include best practices for onboarding, given the increased popularity of hybrid workspaces, and how to properly supervise and train new employees to mitigate ethics and malpractice risks.

This program has been approved for 1.5 MCLE practical skills credits.
