Founded in 2008 by Chris Munley, Atlas Lawyers seminars bring together talented, innovative experts from across the country to share their ideas on how to market and manage a thriving 21st century law firm. As a busy practicing lawyer, Chris saw the need for a simpler, more direct approach for lawyers to learn about the latest legal trends and innovations. He recognized that most legal seminars had a less is more approach—leaving attendees forced to follow up with vendors at the conclusion of the event and spend more time and money before they were able to implement effective change. As a result, he decided to change the seminar process for lawyers. Atlas Lawyers was started as a comprehensive seminar that would give more and take less; teaching strategy and tactics that small and mid-sized law firms can implement immediately and see results without the upselling and additional expenditures.
