Tifani Sadek left corporate law a year ago to start her own practice, Sadek Legal. Today, another former corporate lawyer is joining her firm, which has been renamed Sadek Bonahoom PLC
Sadek met Erin Bonahoom midway through last year. Both young women were up-and-comers at large local law firms (Bonahoom at Plunkett Cooney
and Sadek at Clark Hill
), but both had aspirations to start their own practices focused on helping small businesses.
"We hit it off so well," Sadek says. "We have been meeting for months (and talking about working together)."
The friends decided to launch Sadek Bonahoom this month to start the year with a clean slate. The practice will be based out of TechTown and is looking to grow sooner rather than later.
"We're hoping to add an associate later this year," Sadek says. "We're going to see how it goes."
The duo decided that by partnering they could more easily realize their business aspirations and balance the demands of building a law practice. The partnership also allows them take on bigger clients whose needs require the work and expertise of multiple people.
"We are really going into it with a go-getter mindset," Sadek says. "We want to really grow this firm."
