The Risk and Insurance Management S­ociety (RIMS) Quality Advisory Council has recognized Beat the clock – Timely lessons from 1,600 lawyers with the 2008 Arthur Quern Quality Award.

RIMS is an international organization with 11,000 member organizations worldwide. The RIMS Quality Advisory Council commended the Lawyers Insurance Fund for their Beat the clock initiative which “demonstrated such innovation and ­creativity as to warrant special recognition.”

The award was presented to the Law Society’s Susan Forbes, QC and Margrett George during the RIMS 2009 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. “This award is particularly meaningful for us,” said Forbes, “because it recognizes quality and innovation in risk management, the fundamental goal of Beat the clock.”
