Attorneys in solo and small firm practices are the backbone of the New York State Bar Association. Approximately 23 percent of NYSBA members identify themselves as solo practitioners, while approximately 29 percent of NYSBA members identify themselves as working in small firms of 2-9 attorneys.

The current COVID-19 crisis is having – and will continue to have for the foreseeable future – a serious negative impact on the ability of our solo and small firm members to practice law.

For that reason, the New York State Bar Association hereby establishes the Emergency Task Force to Assist Attorneys in Solo and Small Firm Practices. The mission of the Task Force is to comprehensively examine the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on all aspects of solo and small firm practices, and to make meaningful recommendations as to how solo and small firm practitioners can maintain their practices despite the current crisis, and how the Association, its members and the profession-at-large can proactively aid these lawyers in both the near and long term during this unprecedented period of crisis and uncertainty.
