Our Selling Process

Our process starts with you. Your individual attorney-owner’s needs, goals, desired timeline, and other considerations will drive our process through to the end.

Here are some things to consider early on if you are considering selling your law firm:

  • How long do you want to work?
  • Who would be an ideal successor-buyer?
  • How long will it take to transition your clients and referrals?
  • What financial needs do you have for retirement?
  • Is price, the buyer or something else the most important factor for you in selling?
  • Imagine what a successful sale looks like for you, your firm, your clients and your team.
  • The Law Practice Exchange will work with you to help answer these and other questions or planning goals from the start to keep focus on making sure success is achieved at the end.

Working with The Law Practice Exchange

Our goal is to help you determine the best selling process for you. For many firms, listing yourself is the ideal way to go. If your revenue is under $1M/year, this is the most economical way to sell your firm.  For other firms with more established revenues, firm business operations and systems, multiple offices or a larger brand the deals are typically more complex and additional brokerage and advisory helps achieve the right results for you and your firm. Our goal in either scenario is to guide you with our experience selling dozens of law firms, to be a resource and provide outside resources you may need, and ultimately to help you choose the best buyer match for you and your firm.
