You aced torts and contracts, but no one in law school explained the business of running a law firm. So, here you are in a solo or small firm trying to manage important cases while hiring a receptionist or selecting office furniture. As the price per square foot of office space for Class A office space continues to skyrocket in areas like Coral Gables and Downtown Miami, Florida, overhead costs for fixed operating expenses such as office lease and rent expenses become extremely challenging to budget for many solo practitioners, small and mid-sized law firms and legal professionals.
Shared office space may be the solution to give you more free time and the opportunity to network with attorneys from a variety of fields.
Going with a solo or small practice doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. Office sharing means attorneys like you will be just across the hall for consultation on a case or a discussion of the impact of a new law. These associations could lead to referrals from esq.suitemates that recognize your expertise in a particular field.
