What a difference a year makes! Last summer at this time, we were in the throes of a pandemic facing record unemployment, a serious economic downturn, a shuttering of courts and other legal enterprises, an unplanned transition to remote work, virtual learning for our children and overall uncertainty and fear. We were desperate for a fast and effective vaccine and wondering how much longer we could endure. The 2020 Kentucky Bar Association convention had been cancelled and we were planning Lawyers Mutual’s first ever virtual Annual Meeting.
Summer is around the corner and there are more and more signs of life returning to a new normal. Here at LMICK, we are in the midst of a busy spring and early summer CLE season and preparing for an office move and our annual meeting. We are looking forward to some opportunities to see our insureds and other lawyers across the Commonwealth in person this fall. In the interim, here are a few important reminders and announcements from LMICK . . .
Happy Spring! The Spring season represents a time of rejuvenation, renewal and growth after a long and cold winter. We at LMICK are hoping that each of you are experiencing a revitalization and transformation of sorts this Spring season, both personally and professionally. We are cautiously optimistic that the hardest days of the pandemic are behind us. So, enjoy the warmer weather and looser COVID-19 restrictions, but stay healthy and well.
2020 is in the rear-view mirror – thank goodness. Whether 2021 is going to be appreciably better and get us back to “normal” remains to be seen. There certainly seems to be the beginnings of movement in the right direction. Your law offices may have been shuttered for much of the past year as we all transitioned to remote work because of the pandemic. Hopefully, you can now resume working from your office, have all your staff back at their posts, and welcome guests and visitors back into your workplace once again. Certainly, it feels like the dawn of a new phase of practice – perhaps a hybrid of in person and remote client meetings, court appearances, depositions, mediations, trials, etc. with more and more in person activities on the horizon.
Happy New Year! The LMICK Board of Directors and staff wish you happiness, peace, success, prosperity, and good health as we embark upon another year. We appreciate having you as an insured and look forward to serving your professional liability insurance needs throughout the year.
