Issues in the market
The openness and prevailing Minimum Terms and Conditions of the SRA wording have continued to see law firms exposed to a potentially high level of claims. It is therefore crucial that law firms, regardless of size, adopt a professional and engaged approach to their Risk Management and Professional Indemnity (PI) insurance. Approaching your renewal as an afterthought, ‘late in the day’, could have serious consequences for the firm.
If every office in this world were to reduce their paper usage even by a small amount, the cumulative effect would not only be mind-boggling but also undoubtedly a strong and effective lever that can go a long way in reducing paper consumption and saving our environment.
However, the questions that any organisation can ask are – why should we reduce our paper consumption? What is wrong with using paper? And why is it my responsibility?

National law firm Veale Wasbrough Lawyers merged with niche London law firm Vizards Tweedie in 2009. One aspect of the merger involved the case management systems that each legal business was using.
Veale Wasbrough had been using our practice management solution for 10 years before this event. The solution included our conveyancing case management software, case tracking and online fee quotation software. While they were happy with how the system worked, they’ve realised that they had to adapt it to the needs of the newly formed business.
