Though COVID-19 falls on the extreme end of the spectrum for disruption of daily operations, there will always be unanticipated events outside of your control that have the potential to impact your business. As such, all firms should have both a disaster preparedness and business continuity plan.
As you brace yourself for potential closures and remote work, there are a number of questions you should ask and steps you should take to get prepared and formulate your plans:
- How do you transition to remote work quickly?
- What do you need to ensure that you can continue to meet your clients needs if you cannot meet in-person or have access to your office?
- What do you need to do to ensure that your business continues to run despite an office closure?
Unanticipated events, whether brief or enduring, present an opportunity for law firms to think in new ways about the future of their practice and make process changes accordingly. And while it is impossible to plan for every situation, it is possible to have the tools in your pocket to ensure that your business survives even the most challenging of times. Once you prioritize your needs, you’ll be well on your way toward developing the beginnings of your disaster preparedness and business continuity plan.
