Expanding the reach of your firm beyond your home jurisdiction can add great value to your client base and bottom line.  Depending on where you are licensed, you may have reciprocity with other states to be a practicing licensed attorney.  With the case management software and paperless offices, you can manage your offices from anywhere with the internet. This course is designed to provide a foundation for those interested in expanding their practice’s footprint to other jurisdictions and highlight the potential pitfall areas that can delay or stop your expansion. Speaker Anthony Modarelli has laid the groundwork for the multi-jurisdictional practice, including firm infrastructure and handling jurisdiction-specific requirements for opening a firm, and will share his adversities and successes that he encountered.
