LI25 Does Your Disaster Plan Need a Makeover?

Kathryn N. Scourby

It could be a burst pipe, a fire in a neighboring suite, or a weeklong power outage - it doesn’t have to be a natural disaster that closes your firm’s doors. Does your current plan address temporarily relocating your office and can your lawyers continue providing services to their clients if such a situation were to occur?  If not, then this session is for you. Join this hands-on session where you will receive and work through a checklist of items to review, and receive a template that you can bring back to your office and customize for your firm.
