Design firms face risk every day—you can’t avoid it. At times, the practice of architecture or engineering can feel like a minefield. Our goal at Berkley DP, and the purpose of this webinar is to help guide you through that minefield without getting blown up by risk.

At its core, risk management for design professionals is practice management——and both are best done proactively. A Risk Management Plan is an essential element of loss prevention and a key ingredient of financial success for a design firm. One that is integrated into a firm’s culture and embraced by its leadership makes a significant positive impact on business performance and longevity. An effective plan contemplates the entire project cycle: from client selection to project inception and through project close-out. Bottom line: a well-run, well-managed design firm is more profitable and has less exposure to risk.

This webinar offers insight on the benefits of a Risk Management Plan and the building blocks to help you develop one for your firm.
