We are all living in unprecedented times. Our country has not dealt with a pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu, and considering how globalism has exploded in the past 100 years, it is no mystery why this pandemic is so much worse. People are struggling with their health, their bills, and maintaining a career. We are not through the crisis yet, but there will be a lot of clean-up to do once we are on the other side.
We are going to need lawyers for that.
If your practice focuses on the right areas of the law now, you can step in and lend a helping hand once the dust settles and our communities start the process of cleaning up the COVID mess and building a strong foundation for the future. Based on what we have learned from the hundreds of attorneys we work with, we believe that the following legal areas will see a rise in demand once the COVID crisis is through.
The most important thing to do to prepare your legal practice for a post-COVID world is to stay on top of the news and research every emerging area of law that you can. No one anticipated a global pandemic.
Laws and regulations surrounding the handling of this pandemic change all the time. If you offer legal advice and help people and businesses with clean-up once the crisis is behind us, you need to make yourself a subject matter expert on COVID-19 rules and regulations. Critical thinking and strategy development will be essential since no one has done this before you. It is an exciting time for legal practices.
