Disaster Planning

June 1st was the official start of hurricane season. Those of us from South Carolina still remember Hurricane Hugo. With Katrina and other disasters in the not so distant past, it’s amazing that many businesses still don’t have a disaster plan in place. It’s particularly important for lawyers to have a disaster plan so that they can keep meeting client obligations even when their business is interrupted. Now is a great time to update your firm’s disaster plan or create one if you don’t currently have a plan in place. The Bar’s disaster preparedeness page has lots of great resources and articles to help with creating a disaster plan for your firm. Even if your firm already has a plan in place, reviewing and updating it will give you peace of mind and ensure that you and your practice will be prepared in the event of a disaster.
