Risk management is an issue every firm and practicing attorney must face. The less time they spend having to worry about risk, the more time there is to focus on clients. One inherent risk that will never go away is not meeting deadlines. Failure to file in a timely manner or not calendaring properly is a legal malpractice claim waiting to be filed against you and your firm. This can be mitigated greatly by having reliable calendaring, docketing and staff internally. By using effective calendaring and docketing tools, users can receive the latest court rules and automated reminders of upcoming events and appearances. Investing in proper calendaring and docketing options will reduce risk and decrease costs.
