There are many situations in today’s world that could close your law firm or affect its reputation. As the global pandemic continues to impact the current business landscape around the world, law firm leaders are looking at their business continuity and risk management programs to determine current and future risks to their firms and help make vital business decisions. In this session we will discuss business continuity and the steps that your firm can take now to protect your employees, make informed business decisions about the best working environment for your firm, and ensure organizational resiliency and profitability. Items such as continuing to have a remote work environment while also phasing back to an office work setting, conducting Business Impact Assessments (BIA’s) for your firm, the future of providing services to clients while also implementing a viable lawyer succession plan, risk management and compliance issues, creating comprehensive written business continuity plans and testing those plans will be discussed.
