According to the ABA the likelihood of a private practice attorney being sued for malpractice in any given year runs between 4% and 17%.  Further, attorneys who are establishing their firms can expect, on average, at least three malpractice claims over their careers.

Clearly this isn’t a happy subject, and to help, the Law Firm Practice Management team has put together an infographic about malpractice claims to include these 8 tips for minimizing malpractice risk:

  1. Avoid trouble with trust accounting.
  2. Eliminate the risk of missed deadlines.
  3. Follow real and virtual paper trails.
  4. Find the tools that best fit your firm’s growth.
  5. Simplify and automate client onboarding.
  6. Close the communications gap.
  7. Establish a routine and adapt to new technology.
  8. Generate airtight documents.
