During past disasters, such as the steam pipe explosion and the subway flooding in New York, ATL served as a clearinghouse for interesting stories about how lawyers and law firms were dealing with those emergencies.
Today the headlines are dominated by news of the devastating California wildfires, which have burned 269,000 acres and caused the evacuation of an estimated 500,000 people. From a reader:
San Diego is burning, and Los Angeles is not far behind. I’d be interested to hear the impact on law firms in those cities and what, if anything, they’re doing to help their employees and clients.
A good suggestion — we’d like to give the West Coast equal treatment. If you can respond to this reader’s query, and if you’re sitting in front of your computer rather than evacuating, please share your experiences in the comments.
