A Year in Risk Management: The Road Map to a Better Practice

Event Types: 
CLE Programming
Date: 
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 8:30am

Properly established and efficient practice management processes and procedures can pay big dividends in protecting against malpractice claims and ethics complaints. Bulletproofing your practice in these small ways allows you to concentrate on your clients rather than the day-to-day operation of your firm. And while every lawyer wants effective systems, too often, the hardest part is developing a strategy of review and implementation for the law office operation. This program is for every lawyer who wants better procedures but lacks a road map for reaching a better practice.
