William T. McCaffery to Present “Risk Management for the Trusts and Estates Practitioner”

Garden City, New York, February 11, 2016

On Thursday, March 31, 2016, L’Abbate Balkan partner, William T. McCaffery, will present a CLE webinar “Risk Management for the Trusts and Estates Practitioner” for Lawline.

Legal malpractice claims against trusts and estates practitioners have risen by more than fifty percent over the course of the past twenty five years. As such, trusts and estates practitioners must recognize their exposure and incorporate risk management into their daily practice of law. This course will review the trusts and estates practitioner’s increasing exposure to legal malpractice claims, the activities that lead to malpractice claims, ways to reduce exposure to potential claims, and will discuss insurance considerations for the trusts and estates practitioner.

Mr. McCaffery is a member of L’Abbate Balkan’s Attorney Liability Practice Group, which focuses on the representation of attorneys in diverse matters such as malpractice, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, intentional torts, fraud, libel and slander, violations of state and federal statutes and civil RICO. L’Abbate Balkan has a well-documented track record of excellence in representing attorneys since the time of the Firm’s founding more than 30 years ago.
