ISBA's Practice Toolbox Series

Presented by the Illinois State Bar Association

Many lawyers master the concepts of trust accounting, but struggle with business accounting. This one-hour webinar** helps you grasp important law firm accounting concepts, including: understanding the difference between cash and accrual accounting; partner compensation (i.e. should you be paid by paycheck or by draw-check); deciphering your profit and loss statement; understanding what your balance sheet is telling you (or not telling you); and more. Find out what you need to know and the questions you should ask as a business owner.
