This Solo/Small Firm Tookit has been prepared by a group of small firm and solo practitioners in San Francisco as part of The Bar Association of San Francisco’s (BASF) “Mind the Gap” or MTG initiative. MTG is focused on recent law grads struggling – through no fault of their own – to find full time legal employment in the worst legal job market in a generation. As part of MTG, and recognizing that many in this situation will not find jobs in large or mid-size firms, we have put together this Toolkit as a resource for those who decide to start a small or solo practice.
