One lesson is already clear from the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic: Law firms that do not have a serious plan to respond to crises like COVID-19 are already severely handicapped in their ability to respond to them. Options are limited. There is a very high sense of urgency. Law firm leaders frequently feel that they must make big decisions with limited information. As a result, ad hoc responses seldom work very well.

This is where most law firms -- especially smaller ones -- find themselves today.

But it's not too late to develop an effective response that will not only help your firm survive this crisis, but will also enable you to emerge from this crisis stronger than before.

Why? Because you will be ready for the next one.
