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

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.

• 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
