These are risks that may arise from changed circumstances. The client may get
divorced, necessitating a new will. The law governing medical practice may
change, necessitating changes in the office routine. It is impossible to
anticipate all future problems. The objective of the legal audit is not to predict
the future but to compile an inventory of the client’s legal relationships. This
inventory will help both the client and the attorney to recognize when they
need to take action to protect the client’s legal health.
