To protect their clients and practices, all lawyers need to plan for those good and bad possibilities. The State Bar is pleased to offer their Succession Planning Handbook, available free to State Bar members. This comprehensive handbook is the result of the work of the State Bar's Succession Planning Task Force, in concert with the Lawyer Assistance Programs Director and Ethics Counsel, and contains valuable information to guide you in this vital planning process. In addition, below you will find forms and checklists to assist you in creating and implementing a succession plan for your practice, or to assist another lawyer in closing theirs.
