The annual hurricane season is once again upon us. With the National Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration’s prediction of a higher-than-average active season, now is the time for businesses to review their internal policies and make any necessary preparations should a storm impact your area.

By their very nature, disasters are unpredictable. But it is possible to prepare for and recover from such unforeseen events. During a crisis, information is a businesses’ most important tool and clear, timely client communications are our top priority. Jones Walker’s cross-disciplinary Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Client Team advises companies, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals as they prepare for, respond to, and recover from unforeseen crises. We understand the myriad legal issues that arise when drafting, communicating, and implementing disaster-preparedness plans, and have extensive experience representing clients as they work through the aftermath of a major event.

At all times, our goal is to get clients back in business. We regularly distribute recovery-related information using the firm’s News & Insights and Disaster Prep and Recovery Blog, through ongoing seminars, and via one-on-one meetings.

Our Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Client Team remains poised to assist clients when and where such challenges arise during the 2024 hurricane season.
