Nance was asked by Upjourney what risk management is and why it is important. Below is her response:
Risk management is a large part of my practice, and it is exactly what it sounds like—managing risk of losses, in terms of money, time, energy, relationships, opportunities, and more. I help defend claims against these corporate clients, and I bring matters to resolution. But we go beyond the individual cases. My clients understand that the best risk management strategies include education and training, so that their employees and representatives minimize the chance of loss. We work on having productive conversations regarding gender, race, religion, and disability. We learn about developments in safety, technology, and neuropsychology, so we can continuously create workplaces that evolve with the ever-changing needs of the marketplace and all the people that drive it, from customers to employees, manufacturers to marketers.
