    Leveraging Technology During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Effective Use of Technology and Preparing for Future Scenarios

    Legal Finance Operations
    OM

    The global COVID-19 pandemic will have repercussions that are not only far-reaching but also have the potential to have an impact for months or even years to come. Many law firms took proactive steps to protect their employees, including shutting offices and transitioning to working from home. As this pandemic continues, firms must evaluate the technology they have in place to determine if it enables or hinders productivity. Moreover, as states are reopening and allowing businesses to do the same, firms must look at technological, financial and operational considerations when planning for a reopening, as well as what future waves of coronavirus might mean.

    Objectives:

    • Define three ways businesses can enable their staff to have remote access.
    • Identify the best practices and recommendations on these technologies, their implementations, and maintaining productivity.
    • Analyze considerations and best practices for reopening offices.
    • Devise logistics to anticipate potential future waves of the pandemic that may occur after offices are back up and running again.
