Top 6 Liability Risks for Lawyers

Cyberattacks and changes in marijuana laws are some of the key issues discussed at a recent conference about exposures attorneys face.

Whether it’s the threat of cyberattacks that show no signs of slowing down or evolving changes in marijuana laws, law firms big and small face a number of potential liability risks.

It’s a topic that lawyers, insurance brokers, underwriters and claims professionals discussed at length during a Lawyers’ Professional Liability Conference in Las Vegas hosted by my employer, Argo Pro. During the two-day conference, seven presenters explored a host of topics regarding understanding, mitigating and insuring professional liability risks.

Here are some key takeaways from the conference:
