This article, Starting Over in the Big Pond (Richmond Business Journal, 6/28/06) reports on “the joys and tribulations of starting a small law firm” as told by former biglaw attorneys Greg Holland and Steven Setliff.  The pair describe some of the differences between biglaw practice and starting your own firm, from having to make decisions like whether to have a coffee pot and what kind of insurance to purchase to whether you lose clout when your own name, rather than that of a top tier law firm appears on your pleadings.  Still, Holland and Setcliff, who combined have forty years of practice experience between them, can’t stop smiling about the possibilities that solo practice will bring.

They may have left a big firm practice, but as I see it, Holland and Setcliff are finally hitting the big time by starting their own firm.
