Risk Management: An Approach to Reducing the Possibility of Litigation
I’m Michael Gibson at Higgs Fletcher & Mack. In California, anyone can file a lawsuit. However, through appropriate risk management, it is possible to reduce your exposure if you are ever sued. Three elements comprise effective risk management: risk identification, risk assessment and development of measures to contain risk. In our experience, one response measure does not fit all risks. Some must be accepted; while others risks can be mitigated or avoided altogether. Risk management can be a complex, inexact science. However, the attorneys at Higgs Fletcher & Mack can assist you in assessing the risks you face and outlining options to address them.
