In a digital era, does a lawyer have to “hang an actual shingle” to be successful? For new lawyers, lawyers transitioning from a firm to a solo practice, or lawyers transitioning into retirement, utilizing a co-working solution offers the benefits of reduced overhead, an opportunity to work in collaborative settings, and overall flexibility. Utilizing certain executive-suite style buildings also offer lawyers and other professionals the ability to use desirable locations without the cost associated with leasing or owning such spaces. Such shared spaces are also options that can be utilized by small business or entrepreneurial clients. This CLE will discuss the legal intricacies of shared spaces from negotiating leasehold or membership interests in executive suite or co-working spaces, to abiding by office rules and regulations, to effectively operating a law firm or business in an ethical and compliant manner from a shared space - emphasizing the need for investment in digital infrastructure.
