New LAWPRO® booklet helps lawyers with disaster planning

PDF file for download (Size: 18K)

TORONTO, ON, September 10, 2002: If your office was completely disrupted by fire or theft, how long would it take you to contact all of your clients, recreate all your computer data, contact your insurance company, process invoices, contact opposing counsel and generally get your practice operational again? Does your practice have a plan in place to cover such eventualities?

Lawyers looking for answers to these, and many more, questions will find them in a new booklet -- managing practice interruptions -- published by Lawyers' Professional Indemnity Company (LAWPRO). The booklet helps lawyers determine how prepared they are to cope with minor and major practice interruptions, and details the steps involved in disaster planning.

Some of the topics include:

  • the scope of a disaster recovery plan;
  • the processes and procedures that need to be in place to prepare, respond and recover from a disaster, such as contact lists, evacuation procedures and emergency response teams;
  • property and premises issues such as the need for an inventory of all contents, adequate insurance coverage, space planning and computer backups;
  • preparing the practice by ensuring client files and other key documents are stored properly; and
  • the steps in the recovery process.

The booklet is available on the practicePRO website at www.practicepro.ca/disasterrecovery.

Managing practice interruptions is the fifth in a series of managing booklets published by practicePRO, LAWPRO's risk and change management program. The booklets provide tips and practical advice to help lawyers better manage the increasingly complex practice environment. Copies of these and other booklets are available on practicePRO website at www.practicepro.ca.

Lawyers' Professional Indemnity Company (LAWPRO) provides a diverse range of insurance-related programs, services, and resources to support the legal community in numerous jurisdictions across Canada.
