This conference is not just designed for attorneys age 50 and over who are looking for answers to the many questions they have as they start thinking about retirement, but also young lawyers looking to plan for their future.

A survey conducted in New York showed that among attorneys 50 and over, 24% of respondents didn’t plan to retire until their 70s, 12% planned to keep working as long as they could and 22% hadn’t decided what their future would be. These results show how commonplace it is, and will continue to be, for senior attorneys to practice well into their sixties, and beyond.
