HLG Attends CAL Small Firm Summit

Herring Law Group’s Executive Director, Erin Schaden, recently attended the California Lawyer’s Association Solo & Small Firm Summit in Huntington Beach.  The Conference’s presenters included many nationally-prominent attorneys, and technology and strategic law office management professionals.

Through Erin, we dove deeper into a variety of law practice management issues faced by small firms – very much including HLG. 

Insights gained include ways to better manage technology to better assist our clients, reduce stress and increase inter-office harmony and efficiency.  With Erin’s input, we are continuing to develop strategies for identifying and better handling our growing practice.
At the Conference, Erin’s other areas of focus included:

• Practical approaches to updating law firm technology;
• Managing client trust accounts;
• Confidentiality in the digital age;
• Electronic discovery;
• Legal ethics and privacy;
• Managing social media;
• Data security;
• California’s new sexual harassment training and workplace investigation;
• Managing a paperless office;
• Time Management and
• Stress reduction

It was an informative few days, providing us updates regarding the latest trends, information and research on how to best manage a small firm.   HLG remains thoughtful and diligent in our approaches toward better service and overall excellence, and so we thank Erin for her enthusiastic participation!
