Businesses are vulnerable to disasters. And now more than ever, businesses are dealing with a crisis they’ve likely never considered: a pandemic.

 

Most of the time, a company’s business continuity plan (BCP) covers predictable disasters, such as significant deaths, losing a big client, power outages, fires, and other weather-related circumstances. But rarely (if ever) do BCPs cover pandemics of the magnitude currently being experienced due to COVID-19.

 

Despite all of this, resilience is achievable. To succeed, businesses generally have two options: continue as business as usual (and hope it works), or adapt to a new way of working that better suits the new environmental conditions and update their business continuity plans. Examples of the latter include restaurants pivoting to pick-up only orders or fitness boutiques offering virtual classes.

 

So, what does that mean for law firms?

 

Commerce as we know it may never be the same. We’re in the middle of a health crisis with no signs of stopping, and failure to adapt to the new normal will be detrimental to firms. But what do firms need to do in order to swim, rather than sink? Move to the cloud.

 

But it’s deeper than that—especially if firms are new to change. Here are a few things for firms to consider:

 

  • How will I protect my clients’ data?
  • How will my clients adopt to how I run my firm?
  • How will I be able to provide my clients with the best possible services if I can’t see them as often?
  • How can I prosper and grow in these uncertain times? 
  • How can I overcome my fear of the cloud? 
  • How can I automate my interactions and better manage my overhead? 

We totally get it—the above probably seems daunting, but fortunately for you, the cloud covers it all. And for corporate lawyers, there’s a more specific solution: adding dealcloser to your BCP.

 

Though we’re not sure when, this pandemic will conclude and economic growth will resume. But the resilience of your business depends on how you act now. It’s time to update your BCP, adapt technology, move to the cloud, and let us help you get there. Remember, we’re all in this together.
