Reducing practice risk for lawyers.

“4 out of 5 lawyers will have at least one malpractice claim during their career¹.”


Fines, legal expenses, lost time, damage to reputation, potential loss of business, and, in the worst cases, suspension or disbarment can be some of the consequences.

Lawyers spend thousands of dollars every year on professional liability insurance to reduce the consequences of a complaint, and lower overall risk to their practice. But insurance only addresses the consequence side of the risk formula.

Can lawyers easily and effectively reduce the likelihood of complaints, and reduce risk to their practice even more? Without spending thousands of additional dollars?

Yes, they can.

Taking a professional self-assessment designed specifically for lawyers has been demonstrated to reduce complaints against lawyers significantly. In one study published by the University of Melbourne the effect was a remarkable 60%.

The results showed that the actual self-assigned scores were unrelated to the level of improvement. What mattered most was simply taking it– the changes in behavior and self-awareness it promoted alone led to fewer complaints.

One thing is clear; it’s unnecessary and unwise to leave that much risk on the table. Reduce the chances of–or altogether avoid–a future claim of malpractice. Take a regular professional self-assessment made for lawyers.
