Whether you're a legal practitioner in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Alberta or Saskatchewan, it's probably a good idea to be well-aware of what law societies are expecting and regulating once they audit you, which happens quite often.

Like an equipment inspector lifting the hood to a work vehicle, regulators are going to be unhappy if integral elements to financial management are completely missing or working improperly.
