about risk management from time to time – usually in the context
of a case they are working on or a sticky issue they are trying to
resolve. Unfortunately, it is less common to find lawyers thinking about
risk management in a proactive manner.
This article looks at eight categories of risk management applicable to
your overall practice. Take the time to truthfully assess how you think
you are doing in these categories. Improving your risk-management
strategies may help you keep clients, save money, and avoid being the
subject of an Office of Lawyer Regulation complaint or a malpractice
claim. It may even make you a better lawyer.
