Risk management and practice analysis, in any industry, involves identifying potential risks and conflicts, and working to prevent any negative results. In the legal world, risk management generally involves educating lawyers and setting up systems designed to prevent complaints from clients, accusations of professional misconduct, malpractice, escrow errors, and other costly mistakes.
You know your practice better than any other person. You have an in-depth understanding of your practice area, your clients’ needs, and the ways in which your firm operates. You likely have some kind of risk management strategy in place that is based on your own experience with running your firm.
For these reasons, you may feel that hiring an attorney to help you is unnecessary. However, the input of an experienced outside attorney can be very valuable. We can identify issues you may not have noticed and can offer an additional perspective on the risks your practice faces. Additionally, having a legal team dedicated to your firm’s risk management strategy will allow you to focus more on your cases and clients.
Among other things, we can help you set up systems within your office to assure that all cases are assigned to the proper staff member and timely handled. Perhaps most importantly, we can review your escrow management practices to assure that you are in compliance. In short, we can review your practice and help you sleep better knowing that you have done as much as you can to avoid grievances and malpractice claims.
