  • 'Launch a Law Firm' consultation with Elena Manukyan

    Starting a law firm can feel overwhelming. Solicitors are not trained to start, run, and scale businesses, and yet many ultimately go on to launch their very own law firm. Elena Manukyan did exactly that in 2020, and ever since then has been working with other solicitors who want to start their own law firms by offering 1-to-1 consultations covering 9 of the biggest topics in law firm start-ups.
