Practice & Procedure Practice Management 


Seeing the big picture is essential for good matter management. Experienced busy practitioners practising in their area of expertise are still at risk of claims.

Don’t get so caught up in the process that you lose sight of your client’s position and what is really happening in the matter. Claims against practitioners often involve allegations the practitioner did not properly understand the client’s objectives and advise appropriately. Practitioners can manage these risks by periodically stepping back to think proactively about issues and asking themselves the following questions.
