Join an unparalleded faculty of leading insurance professionals, counsel specializing in LPL, law firm risk managers and renowned jurists to ensure that you are fully protected against emerging risks and prepared to defend against the latest legal malpractice claims.

Continuing fallout from the implosion of the real estate market, the wave of bankruptcies and Ponzi schemes and the broader state of the economy has led to increasing lawsuits against attorneys by frustrated clients. Additionally, the use of electronic communication, cloud computing and social media brings new retention, network security and privacy risks. Attorneys and law firms must stay ahead of the curve to avoid unnecessary exposure to risk and successfully defend against the newest deluge of legal malpractice claims.

ACI’s Advanced Forum on LPL/Legal Malpractice Claims and Litigation is designed to offer insurers, brokers, attorneys and other risk management professionals valuable insight into how to prevent, manage and defend against
the most current legal malpractice claims. Get the inside scoop from judges on the latest malpractice claims brought against attorneys as well as from leaders in the insurance industry.
