Matter Management Guidelines – Screening & Engaging

Thursday 22nd November, 2018 12:00 pm – Thursday 22nd November, 2018 2:00 pm
Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

The second seminar in the Law Mutual (WA) series concerning the Practice and Matter Management Guidelines will focus on the first two phases of Matter Management – screening and engaging clients. The Guidelines were developed in 2017 and set out the requirements for management of practices and matters with an emphasis on mitigating professional liability risks. This seminar focuses on the risks that arise during screening and engaging clients and how to apply the requirements set out in the Matter Management Guidelines to avoid potential liability claims.

It provides participants with practical advice on what controls are most effective to protect their firm, depending on its size and areas of specialty. This seminar is particularly relevant to practice principals but should also be of interest to employed practitioners.

Note: Practitioners seeking to attend this seminar must have attended the Introduction to Practice and Matter Management Guidelines seminar.

Designed for Sole Practitioners, Principals & Directors.
