Remote working – is it here to stay for law firms?
Like all businesses, law firms had to adopt remote working strategies throughout lockdown and into these socially-distanced times, but is this a habit that’s here to stay?
I have friends who are partners of law firms and home working has become the new norm for them. They can even ‘dress for the diary’ whereby they wear office clothes when they have a video meeting and more casual attire when they don’t. This is a million miles away from the stuffy, uptight persona lawyers are often tarnished with!
However there were some law firms that appeared closed during lockdown as our business development team could not get hold of them as their phones just rang unanswered or a voicemail informed them that the office was indeed closed.
