Risk Management in Law Firms brings together lawyers, consultants and other risk and compliance professionals to provide expert and practical guidance on essential risk management topics. Chapters cover risks relating to clients, internal operations and law and regulation, and address recent developments including issues arising from the shift to hybrid working, the increased focus on ESG and climate change, and the extended influence of clients through outside counsel guidelines. There is also consideration of the future of risk management with coverage of the proposed changes to the SRA Codes of Conduct to address issues relating to wellbeing and unfair treatment at work, and the commercial opportunities for law firms and individual lawyers presented by the increasingly flexible principles-based regulation.
Modern Lawyer, October 2022
The latest issue of Modern Lawyer is now live for subscribers.
Editor Isabel Parker writes: "In this issue of Modern Lawyer, we are consciously looking to unlock our ivory tower and explore what legal can learn from other industries. The idea stemmed from a conversation with my good friend Emma Jacobs, feature writer for the Financial Times, who specialises in writing about the future of work. Emma has covered lots of different industries - but never legal. She was curious; how is the legal profession adapting to the workplace trends that are redefining other industries? Our contributors draw on their wide-ranging experience to help us answer this question. What lessons can legal learn from public planning authorities about effective change management? What can technology companies teach lawyers about productising for delivery at scale? If 45% of 18 to 24-year-olds are prepared to share their data in exchange for a more intuitive and personalised user experience, what are the implications for data sharing in legal services? Does empathetic leadership really matter - and how can it be put into practice in a law firm context?"
Directors' Liability and Indemnification
The new edition of Directors' Liability and Indemnification: A Global Guide is now live for subscribers to Company and Commercial.
New features of this edition include greater scrutiny of criminal vs regulatory liability, forecasting of particular trends, and the insurability of fines and penalties in the jurisdictions covered, as well as new chapters on Jersey and Guernsey (Offshore), Sweden (Nordics) and Saudi Arabia.
Review for previous edition: This volume will likely prove a valuable resource for insurance advisors and others called upon to counsel companies in connection with the associated liability exposures and related insurance considerations. - Kevin M LaCroix, The D&O Diary
