The unexpected can strike your law firm and your clients in many forms. Whether it’s a pandemic, a natural disaster, or an emergency change in leadership, you need to know whether your firm can recover quickly enough to meet your clients’ increased legal needs. If there’s a threat to your firm’s security or data, can you protect critical client and case information? And what if something happens to you, or you retire—is your firm ready for that kind of transition?
These situations may be uncomfortable to think about, but they’re even worse to ignore. Considering how your law firm will react to the unexpected—and developing strategic plans of action for these events—can protect your clients and prevent your practice from coming to a screeching halt, especially with new situations like the current COVID-19 pandemic.
In this CLE-eligible webinar, you’ll learn:
- The ethical obligations that shape how you should prepare for disasters and succession at your law firm
- The policies and procedures necessary for ensuring that your firm can react effectively to the unexpected
- How legal technology can help provide peace of mind in the face of uncertainty
Duration: 60 minutes
