Safeguarding your practice in 2023
As 2023 commences, we offer gratitude to our ever-growing base of new and returning members who remain the focus of our mission and make our Company the extraordinary success that it is today.
During 2022 our membership surpassed the 11,000-attorney milestone, emphasizing our continued evolution and expansion well into our fifth decade of operations.
This sustained membership growth is a testament to both the fortitude of the lawyers of California and the enduring strength of Lawyers’ Mutual.
Growth, combined with innovation and education defines our mutual goals of stability and longevity serving the California legal community. Whether it’s launching new programs such as our Insurance Defense policy, curating topical content through our ever-growing member CLE library, or giving back to our members through our annual dividend for a 26th consecutive year in 2022, we continue to remain totally committed to serving our members.
Rest assured we will continue to invest in pioneering ways to improve our services through deeper member engagement, thought leadership programs, inspiring CLEs and researching new tools to support as many California attorneys as possible.
We appreciate that every year creates new challenges, and are confident that whatever we face, we will face together.

As technology continues to advance and your firm’s reliance on technology increases, it’s time to create awareness and protect yourself, your firm and your clients against the risk of cyber threats.
For the month of June Lawyers’ Mutual will be bringing attention to Internet Safety and Cyber Security. Each Monday we will share a few simple steps to help your firm maintain an internet safe environment.
The two most common online threats to be cautious of are ransomware and email fraud.
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is a type of malware that takes your business data and holds it hostage for a ransom, this could be in the form of currency or gift cards.
Signs of Ransomware
- Anomalous file system activity, such as hundreds of failed file modifications
- Increased CPU and disk activity for no apparent reason
- Inability to access certain files
- Suspicious network communications
What is Email Fraud?
Email fraud occurs when criminals impersonate a business contact, employee, customer or vendor to trick you into transferring money or sensitive information (like passwords) to the criminal.
Signs of Email Fraud
- Unverified email senders impersonating vendors/business partners
- Dangerous phishing emails containing bad link attachments from unverified sender
- Receiving “spam” or “junk” emails
The following are safety measures that can be implemented in protecting against both ransomware and email fraud:
- Two-factor authentication
- Uniquely strong passwords
- Educating and training employees (Teach them about red flags in malicious emails, such as corporate-looking email accounts, suspicious file attachments, suspicious links to external URLs)
- Secure your email system
- Use advanced endpoint protection
