As football fans prepare to descend on Indianapolis for Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 5, the city’s lawyers are busy prepping contingency plans to ensure legal business continues as normal.
From addressing parking concerns for court hearings, to allowing remote access to firm servers, to adjusting office hours to account for boosts in traffic congestion, law firms, courtrooms, office managers and administrators have considered nearly every angle, the Indiana Lawyer reports.
“This will be a fun and exciting time for our city, and everyone will have to be flexible and accommodating in what we do so that we’re viewed not only as good hosts but productive professionals,” Bryce Bennett at Riley Bennett & Egloff in downtown Indianapolis told the Indiana Lawyer.
As other Super Bowl host cities reported an uptick in code citations and arrests from unauthorized vendors and rowdy fans, one Super Bowl plan includes avenues to allow out-of-towners to resolve their issues without going through the entire booking and court process.
