Coming Together – The Art of Merging
Whether you’re bringing in a new partner from the outside, purchasing a niche specialty practice, or merging with another firm, navigating the nuances to ensure success can be tricky. In this session, we’ll remove the mystique of what it takes to bring two entities together so that you can enjoy the synergies of a larger, stronger practice. We will discuss best practices where you will:

- Understand the means for valuing the practice that will work today and in the future
- List the steps to develop an integration plan to ensure rapid assimilation and collaboration
- Assess the elements of a communications plan to share your strategies with your team, clients, and others in the right timing
