YOU KNOW THE LAW. WE KNOW BUSINESS.
Let’s get you launched!
From helping our clients launch new entities to running one of the fastest growing legal firms in Northeast Ohio, we have deep knowledge in what it takes to get a successful business off the ground. That is why we are seeking promising, entrepreneurial attorneys with incredible vision and an ambitious growth mindset for our competitive Firm Launch program – a cooperative Of Counsel partnership to help you take your practice to the next level – FAST.
Selected Firm Launch participants will receive office space* and telecommunications, access to business development and marketing resources, technology, paralegal and secretarial support, research, mentoring, and collaboration with the region’s highest-performing legal professionals in our collaborative and busy business law office.
FIRM LAUNCH QUALIFICATIONS
Attorneys with an interest to launch a new practice, or grow their existing practice, and have at least five years of experience are encouraged to apply. Candidates who practice in the areas of business litigation, corporate, securities, M&A and commercial transactions, banking, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, tax, municipal, government, intellectual property, labor, and employment will be considered.
FIRM LAUNCH APPLICATION PROCESS
Interested applicants should submit a resume, a business plan (2-5 pages), at least two client references and two peer references, and complete the following questionnaire. The business plan must contain SMART goals and an action plan with identified benchmarks for your first year.
GLF will review all submissions and invite top applicants to interview. Candidates will be evaluated on a number of criteria, including:
- Quality of the business plan
- Minimum of five years of private practice or in-house experience
- Practice expertise in business transactional work, business litigation, or other practice areas complementary to business law

- Potential for growth and success
Firm Launch is hosted at our new Independence, OH office location. Selected candidates will receive an office, furniture, phone, full IT support, secretarial/paralegal/law clerk support (as available), email, research databases, marketing assistance, and professional development coaching, all cost-free, for up to one year, provided that the candidate’s self-generated benchmarks are met (or are excused).
