On March 20, 2024, property and casualty insurance producer Joel Jarvis will lead a special panel presentation of “Protecting Your Law Firm Against Financial Crime” for the continuing legal education of Nevada lawyers in a lunchtime learning program produced by the Clark County Bar Association and sponsored by Alera Group. Joel will be joined by leaders from Hanover Insurance for a discussion on matters of crime and fidelity relevant to law firms.

Financial crimes against law firms are on the rise, and this CLE program will teach bar members about the crimes that insurance companies see most often, the way they are orchestrated, and how to avoid being a victim of a financial or property crime at the law firm. Real claims scenarios will be presented, as well as tips and what could have been done to avoid these crimes.

CCBA members are invited to attend the live webcast (via Zoom) for free. See below for details about the event.
