On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with California-based practitioner Mike Chastaine about his journey as a firm owner, how and why he ended up selling that practice, adopting a state of mind whereby you’re a business owner providing legal services and the need for flexibility in getting a firm to a position where it can be sold for a price that the owner is happy with.

Mr Chastaine also details how to quantify the right price to sell at based on personal circumstances and one’s practice area, any black and white questions that must be answered in determined how and when to sell, realising that — one day — every firm will be handed over in some capacity, being more open to acquisition opportunities and meaningfully working on agile succession plans.
