    Oct. 5, 2022 – The pandemic forced lawyers to be flexible and creative to maintain a thriving, profitable business in the hybrid work age. But why stop now?

    This year, the Wisconsin Solo & Small Firm Conference (WSSFC) offers you the flexibility to attend in person or virtually – or both.

    Whether you attend in person or online (or both), WSSFC not only helps with your practice and managing your office, but also provides you with opportunities to make connections with the Wisconsin community of solo and small-firm lawyers.

    Live, Virtual, or Both

    Prefer in-person events? Choose to attend the live event Oct. 27-29 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.

    Want to attend virtually? You’ll get access to all CLE sessions and speakers on Nov. 14-16, 2022. This option offers the flexibility of viewing the content from wherever you are.

    Attend either dates and earn up to 16.5 overall credit hours from six plenaries and your choice of 32 breakout sessions. Plus, those who attend the live WSSFC can earn more CLE by watching select complimentary webcast replays in December.

    What WSSFC Offers Solo and Small-firm Lawyers

    As a solo or small-firm practitioner, you serve your clients – but you may also be a marketing director, accountant, office manager, human resources, head of IT, or “all of the above.”

    “This conference is all about relationships, networking, and learning alongside fellow solo and small-firm attorneys,” said Brent Hoeft of Hoeft Law, and chair of the conference committee.

    Whether you need guidance on the latest technology, business development strategies, or marketing trends, the sessions at WSSFC offer you the opportunity to find the help you need.

    WSSFC offers you the opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself at the live program in October with special events like the Conference Kick-off Luncheon, the Attendee Reception on Thursday, and the Dine-around dinner options.

    And don’t miss the Lederer Award Presentation during the Networking Lunch on Thursday at the live WSSFC and at the virtual WSSFC via a recorded presentation.

    Named in memory of attorney John Lederer, the award is presented annually to an individual, group, or organization exemplifying John’s leadership, spirit, and dedication.
