My thanks to David Ward, a colleague who helps lawyers grow their practices, for this week’s hypothetical (which applies to all professionals): Imagine that a law were passed today, to take effect in three months, that prohibited you from purchasing and using lists, outlawed advertising or promoting yourself on social media and banned seminar-hosting or writing about what you do.

Imagine further that under this law, you could serve your existing clients all you wanted, and if they referred you to a friend or family member, you would be permitted to take on that prospect as a new client—but that would be the only way you could bring in business. What would you do for the next three months until the law took effect? What would you do after it took effect? Would your business survive or would it fail?
