TANQ seminar - Risk Management & the Master Policy – An Early Awareness
Wednesday 26 June 2019
06:00pm - 07:00pm
Gail Cook & Matthew Thomson (Client Executives, Lockton Master Policy Practice Management Team)
Seminar Details:

This talk focuses on the importance of having an awareness of risk management at an early stage in your career. This will be achieved through a focus on what risk means for a new solicitor and their relationship to risk. Through reference to real claims scenarios under the master policy we’ll examine how better risk management could have prevented or at least mitigated such claims,

We will provide plenty of opportunity for interaction and questions to ensure attendees maximise the ‘take-aways’ from the event.

NB - this seminar qualifies as risk management CPD.
