Managing Your Trust Account
Did you know the North Carolina State Bar approved new trust account rules in 2016? Including a requirement for those attorneys who maintain trust account to obtain a CLE hour devoted to trust accounts?
Join a panel of Lawyers Mutual Claims Attorneys and Tom Boyle, CPA, and owner of Trust Books, as they discuss the Trust Handbook and walk through an in-depth example of performing a quarterly trust reconciliation to meet Rule 1.15-3(d)(1)). Topics include:
- Overview of trust accounts
- Breaking down the Key Concepts
- Deposits – funds received
- Payments – funds paid
- Overview of new trust requirements
- Trust reconciliations
Getting By With A Little Help from Our Friends
The ABA and Hazelden Foundation recently conducted a nationwide study confirming that lawyers struggle with depression, anxiety and alcoholism at rates that far exceed rates found in the general population and other professions. We all know the risks. We often see colleagues in trouble but are unsure exactly what to do about it. This presentation will highlight real-world strategies that lawyers and law firms can use to: 1) identify colleagues at risk, 2) create a culture of safety that will reduce barriers for those in need to asking for and receiving help, and 3) intervene when it is clear a colleague needs assistance.
Cyber Safeguards and Procedures
Managing cyber risks is no longer the exclusive domain of IT professionals. This presentation will provide you with the practical guidance you need to better prepare for and respond to cyber incidents. You will learn how to reduce your law firm’s financial, legal and reputational exposure. We will review the following topics:
- Best practices for protecting data and confidential information.
- Internal threats.
- Mobile devices.
- Encryption: What is it and do you need it?
Lawyers Mutual will confirm insured status.
