Find Out Why Your Law Firm Needs Cloud Disaster Recovery
Law firms increasingly rely on technology, and a technology disruption for a few days or even a few hours can result in the loss of billable time, regulatory non-compliance penalties, security breach, or worse. When people think of disasters, they typically think of hurricanes, tornadoes, fire, or floods but for a law firm, even a failed server or network outage can be a disaster.
If your firm has 20 lawyers who bill out at hundreds of dollars per hour, even one hour of network downtime per month means that your firm will lose $54,000 (based on $225/hour billable rate) in billable revenue per year; and that does not even include other costs associated with downtime. If a serious disaster happens and the firm’s operations are down for a week, that is $180,000 lost in billable revenue. Protecting your law firm’s data and
