The COVID-19 pandemic and looming financial crisis is challenging current Business Continuity Planning (BCP) at every organization. The Legal function is mission-critical and therefore it’s incumbent on legal leadership to ensure business continuity for the organization.

Leading the webinar was Lucy Bassli, an expert on legal services, and former Assistant General Counsel, Legal Operations and Contracting at Microsoft. Lucy oversaw Microsoft’s legal operations during the upheaval of the 2007-2008 recession.

The webinar took place on 19 March 2020, where Lucy walked through and discussed each of the steps in the Legal Continuity checklist contained in the file.


These are the slides from the webinar covering a practical and actionable 10-step process to ensure Legal Continuity, including how to map and conduct contingency planning for the team, process and technologies within the legal department.
