About the Webinar:

The COVID-19 pandemic was in no-one’s plans for 2020 and, as most law firms are now working well below capacity, this presents an unprecedented challenge to both their short-term survival and their longer term futures. Firms will need to not only urgently implement contingency plans to safeguard staff and continue to look after clients but at the same time they will need to ensure they have sufficient cash flow for the foreseeable future.
Peter Scott, co-author of the The Law Society’s Financial Stability Toolkit, will provide advice and guidance on how to manage cash-flow during this period of unprecedented change, including:

  • Prioritising the collection and conservation of cash
  • Stress-testing cash flow forecasts against different scenarios
  • Monitoring financial stability and business viability
