Claim Notice Report (Step 1 of 3)                (Aussi disponible en française)

If you do not receive a confirmation number, we did not receive your notice, and it is imperative that you contact the Claims Coordinator.

Submit this form on your own behalf or on behalf of another lawyer if you:

  • Are aware of a claim;
  • Are aware of any potential errors or omissions that may lead to a claim;
  • Are aware of any accusations by a client or other person that could form the basis of a claim; or
  • Have been asked to give evidence about your file handling or a request for production or court order has been made for your file
Do not use this form to provide notice against another lawyer unless doing so with their knowledge and consent or you are a partner at the firm when the lawyer worked at the time of the error. In circumstances where you are reporting a matter in your capacity as a partner at the firm where the lawyer worked at the time of the error, advise the lawyer in question that you have reported the matter.

Complete as much of the form as possible at this time. Do not delay submitting notice of a claim or potential claim for any reason. Take any necessary steps to protect your and LAWPRO's interests with respect to any deadline in the interim.
