We all know that a comprehensive written Business Continuity plan is an essential part of your firm’s Business Continuity program. Is your current plan gathering dust on a shelf? Are you struggling to put together a written plan that not only prepares your firm in the event of a disaster, but also meets client compliance and audit requirements and RFP guidelines, regulatory requirements and industry standards that have changed the playing field for Business Continuity in the legal world? If so, then this session is for you. This session provides valuable information to any size law firm where you will work through a check list of key components that should be a part of every written Business Continuity plan. That checklist can then be used to assess and revise your law firm’s current plan.
