Practice Management

Planning for and Recovering from Disasters

There are some things in life you just can’t control.  Well, yes, we know that we can update our blog posts more often, and can control that to some extent!  However, natural and man-made disasters just happen and there is little to nothing we can do about them, except respond.

The Law Practice Management Program has long list of resources to help with disaster planning and recovery, and is working on a comprehensive guide for Georgia lawyers.  If you find you are in need of a plan – and we recommend everyone have one regardless of firm size or make up, please contact us.

Here is a list of the articles, guides, checklists and forms, we currently have compiled to aid with disaster planning and recovery:
