Lunch Bunch

By Scott R. Forcino, Esq.

Legal Editor

This month I examined the above attorney networking gathering in Washington D.C.of a random group of solo practitioners who regularly meet for lunch. The group has grown exponentially since its inception but its purpose has not. It's a chance to connect and socialize and network with other solos. Business cards and war stories and referrals are exchanged.

The Lunch began nine years ago by a request to the ABA's Solo Attorney department asking if anyone in the D.C. area wanted to get together for lunch. These lawyers meet monthly since that point. The group has grown to over 160 members with about 35 lawyers meeting every month in an informal, non-threatening setting. Many valauble referrals have been given/gotten and more importantly, clients have been served successfully. The huge range of practice areas means there is always a fellow attendee who can refer a client or take on a compelling issue and there is always an authority in a legal topic.

Very recently the Lunch Bunch had their first guest speaker, Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler. He spoke concerning his office's goals and accomplishments. This was a seminal moment for the group. It is anticipate that additional important speakers will attend the meetings and the group will gain in membership and stature and will continue its strong networking benefits.
