This seminar addresses the opportunities and challenges faced by sole practitioners and practitioners from small firms in changing markets.

Maxine Evers is a legal academic interested in sole solicitors working in general practice. She is currently undertaking a PhD, largely based on interviews, which considers the role that this critical group of lawyers have in the communities in which they practise.
Maxine will discuss her project, including emerging themes from existing research and the interviews to date.

Frances Moffitt is a Solicitor in the Professional Standards Department at the Law Society of NSW. Fran’s professional experience includes Insolvency and Bankruptcy Law; Criminal Law (Proceeds of Crime); Administrative Law; Taxation Law; and statutory investigations. She is a regular speaker for the Law Society on practice management; trust accounting and ethics topics.
Fran will cover some of the practicalities and principal’s responsibility under the Uniform Law, in regard to setting up and running your own practice, and recent developments with trust accounts issues.

George Patrinos took his first step in practice as a solicitor conducting mainly real property related legal work within a small boutique liquor licensing firm. From there, he moved into a non-traditional role as a solicitor at one of Australia’s first large call centres, Access24, providing Australia-wide telephone-based legal advice. He then worked as a solicitor in Commercial Property at Blake Dawson Waldron – now Ashurst – before moving internally to Insurance Litigation and conducting LawCover professional indemnity insurance defences of lawyers sued for negligence in real property matters. However, after close to six years at Blakes, it was in 2001 that George truly forged his own path by establishing his own law firm – Lawsome Property Lawyers – representing many lawyers and other professionals in their sale, purchase and transfer of mainly residential property in NSW.
George will share insights to his success with an emphasis on a productivity improvement approach he uses called Lean, a simple and innovative way for practitioners to reinvent their processes.
