Eventually, every professional athlete faces the same challenges: when to retire and what to do next. For the most part, an athlete’s career is limited. Few players will be able to compete into their 40’s. Lawyers, on the other hand, do not face these constraints. They can practice full-time well into their 70’s or 80’s and even continue to actively participate in firm management.
As the pandemic has caused law firms and partners to rethink their priorities, the issue of what to do with senior partners has never been timelier. For lawyers who are thinking about the next 10 to 15 years of their lives, they may be asking themselves the same question that King George poses in the musical Hamilton—What Comes Next?
To help lawyers considering these issues, Steve Seckler has put together The Next Stage, an innovative program which combines workshops and one-on-one coaching. Through this series, participants explore the practical considerations in making a shift after a lengthy legal career.

Steve is also available for one-on-one coaching to help senior attorneys who prefer to discuss these issues privately.
