Lunch and Learn

The Practice Management Advisory Service of the D.C. Bar presents the Small Firm Lunch and Learn Series. Each program in this series will explore a topic of particular interest to members who are starting, managing, or growing law firms in the District of Columbia. Most sessions take place from noon until 2:00 p.m. at the D.C. Bar (901 4th Street, NW) and are free to Bar members and their staff. This is a brown bag event. Attendees may bring their own lunch. Beverages are served.


Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the D.C. Bar has decided to take precautionary measures to protect our members, our staff, and the community we serve. Beginning March 16, key Bar services will only be available online via videoconference.

Past Events

September 22, 2022 – Cyber Exposure for Law Firms

Presented by Mark Lefever of USI Affinity

Why lawyers are prime targets for a cyber-attack and what they can do to protect their law firm.


October 6, 2022 – Valuing a Law Firm

Presented by Ellen Freedman of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and Michael Molder of AILA Limited

One of the most influential factors in law firm valuation is whether or not business is actually transferrable. There is often an intensely personal nature to the attorney-client relationship. It is said that clients hire lawyers, not firms. And often that is true.

You might think you can go to a Business Broker or CPA and let them tell you your firm’s value. But they often tend to lack the necessary experience with law practices to apply the right factors. You might think that you can rely on your Profit & Loss, but gross revenue and gross profit are just two factors, of many, to take into consideration.

This course will demonstrate the application of factors that influence value by reviewing case studies of three actual firms with similar revenues, yet very different values.
