Many believe that establishing and monitoring effective internal controls in a law firm is costly and unnecessary. This presentation will focus on identifying compelling reasons to adopt inexpensive, but effective, internal controls in firms of all sizes. Examples will be provided of controls you may want to implement in client billing, account payables, collections, cash handling and banking, human resources, engagement letters, conflicts, and much more. Real world examples will be shared of the benefits that can be realized by maintaining a strong internal controls environment, such as reductions in losses from fraud and errors, reduced insurance costs, higher utilization, less write-offs and better hiring.
Lunch will be provided.
