Risk Management: The Road Map to a Better Practice – Live in Indianapolis, Merrillville & South Bend – Nov. 7-9

OVERVIEW:
Properly established and efficient practice management processes and procedures can pay big dividends in protecting against malpractice claims and ethics complaints, with the added benefit that bulletproofing your practice in these small ways frees 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, though, the hardest part is developing a strategy of review and implementation of the law office operation. This program is for every lawyer who wants better procedures but lacks a road map for reaching a better practice.

TOPICS:
• The QUIZ – A chance to test your knowledge in the latest hot topics in legal malpractice and ethics, and what you need to know to protect yourself from novel malpractice risks and ethics complaints.

• During the last two hours of the program you will receive recommended monthly action steps that will help you to reduce your exposure to malpractice and to improve your delivery of legal services.

12-Months to a Better Practice
• Month One: Strategic Planning
• Month Two: Client Evaluation & Intake
• Month Three: Conflicts of Interest
• Month Four: Engagement Letters Non-Engagement Letters Closing Letters
• Month Five: Fee Agreements
• Month Six: Calendaring Procedures
• Month Seven: Billing Procedures
• Month Eight: File Retention Policy
• Month Nine: Cybersecurity
• Month Ten: Disaster Recovery
• Month Eleven: Law Firm Advertising
• Month Twelve: Invest in Yourself

NATIONAL SPEAKER:
Christian A. Stiegemeyer is the Director of Risk Management for The Bar Plan Mutual Insurance Company and Executive Vice President of The Bar Plan Foundation. He annually conducts more than seventy Risk Management seminars, on a wide variety of ethical and legal malpractice issues, covering current issues concerning professionalism and providing practical solutions for dealing with malpractice and ethical concerns. Mr. Stiegemeyer also directs The Bar Plan’s Practice Management Program, providing on-site, personalized reviews of lawyers’ law firm practices to help improve risk management and case handling procedures. In addition, Mr. Stiegemeyer responds to The Bar Plan’s ethics and malpractice telephone “Hotline” to timely assist its insureds with issues that arise in their daily practice and has written numerous articles appearing in a variety of national, state and local bar association publications. He received his B.A. from Southeast Missouri State University and J.D. from The Saint Louis University School of Law in 1992.
