How to Run a Conscious Law Firm and Business with Glenn Meier [GWL 30]


Show Notes

Glenn Meier is a partner at Holley Driggs Walch in Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s been practicing for over 25 years, focusing on business litigation. Now, he is working on transitioning his practice to focus on conscious business law! What is that you ask? Read below for the highlights.

Important Stuff We Discuss in this Episode:

  • Even if you have many years of experience, you might still want to work in a firm setting instead of going solo
  • What is conscious business law?
  • The “right way” of business is not about maximizing profits. It’s about creating a better world, helping others, and still making money.
  • The philosophy of conscious capitalism includes these 4 pillars:
    • Have a higher purpose (beyond generating a profit)
    • Adopt a stakeholder orientation (vs. shareholder)
    • Have conscious leadership
    • Have conscious culture
  • How to incorporate these 4 pillars above into a legal practice
  • Why going to law school is like working out only one side of your body for 3 years.
  • During client intake, discuss what your client’s purpose is, not what his/her goals are
  • There will be some non-legal activity in your life that you’re passionate about that’ll teach you lessons that go far beyond that activity
