Continuity – planning for disasters

The new advice I have written is now available from the Handy Guides section of this website – see Continuity Planning.

It isn’t nice to consider what happens if… However, this has information on Special Executors in your Will, appointing an Attorney to deal with your firm and a pro-forma that you can tailor to your own firm for planning for risks such as floods and other disasters. I hope it’s helpful!

Lexis Nexis have published it on their Compliance site, which is well worth a look, as there’s lots of very insightful and helpful material – http://www.lexisnexis.co.uk/sites/en-uk/independent-law/compliance-and-pii.page

 

One thought on “Continuity – planning for disasters

  1. If  a sole practitioner has died, temporary emergency authorisation from the SRA is required. The SRA need to be notified within 7 days  and the application made on form FA7 with 28 days of the date of death. SRA guidance is here – http://www.sra.org.uk/solicitors/firm-based-authorisation/tea-sole-practitioner.page
