That’s how we might distill one lawyer’s answer to the question, “What’s your favorite beer?”
Yet that summarization might gloss over the nuance of his answer which underscores his passion for his profession.
He actually says, there’s a “right beer for the right situation.” He should know: Attorney John R. Szymankiewicz is the Beer Lawyer and his law firm – the Beer Law Center – is focused on “helping craft breweries run business.”
Mr. Szymankiewicz, who is based in Raleigh, NC, will be bringing his passion for his craft – the practice of law that is not hops – to a LegalTech New York session titled, “Solo Disruption: Building Your [Law] Practice on Passion.”
Firm Manager “takes care of a lot of the administrative side that I don’t want to spend time doing I make a living by practicing law – that’s what I get paid for. I don’t make a living or don’t get paid for is sending out invoices or following up with billing or conflict checks. Those are all the things that are necessary so I can do my job.”
The Beer Lawyer’s CLE-Eligible Legal Tech Session
Those attending the Legal Tech New York trade show won’t want to miss Mr. Szymankiewicz session. From the official session description:
When a practice specialty didn’t exist around Attorney John R. Szymankiewicz’s passion, he made one for himself and started The Beer Law Center. Now known as a “Beer Lawyer,” John focuses his practice on helping craft brewers understand and adhere to all their legal obligations throughout the startup and operational phases of chasing their dreams of making and selling craft beer they can call their own. John will not only share his story, but show steps you can take to forge your own path and practice the kind of law you’ve always wanted to.
