Michael S. Burg, the founding shareholder of Burg Simpson, was recently interviewed by Law Week Colorado. During the interview, he shared his insight regarding young attorneys who want to establish their own firms.  Mike Burg, who currently leads a national firm with over 70 attorneys and 100 staff, started his own law firm in the months that followed his graduation from law school. He often gives talks and speaks with new lawyers about opening their own law firms and he is always willing to share his insight with young attorneys. When starting out in their career, many young attorneys consider owning and running their own firm someday. But with rumors about a shrinking legal market, concerns about credit and business capital in the air, some wonder if that will ever be a real possibility.

Michael Burg’s advice to those young lawyers is simple, “Don’t let anyone discourage you. We still need great lawyers.”
