Do these Habits Exist in your Firm?

By Jan Hill

Times change and priorities evolve. Still it’s likely that every law firm has a few bad habits that can hurt productivity today, even if they once worked fine.

Here are some of the most common habits that can harm a law practice and erode client relationships:

Not using a docketing system or yours is seriously outdated

According to the American Bar Association (ABA), substantive errors account for over 46 percent of all reported legal malpractice claims, and one of the most obvious substantive errors committed is the failure to know or ascertain a deadline.

Effective docketing systems should help, not hinder, the practice of law. If the one you are using is not helping to efficiently track and manage deadlines, it might be time to look for a better platform.

Of course, implementation and adoption within a firm is key, since no matter what docketing system a law firm has in place, attorneys and staff members must actually use it to avert the risk of missing a deadline.
