As the COVID-19 pandemic continues with no end in sight, a growing number of law firms on Friday announced plans to have the vast majority of their lawyers and staff begin working remotely.

Reed Smith’s workforce began working remotely Friday, according to a firm spokesperson. On Monday, lawyers and staff at Nixon Peabody, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, Schiff Hardin and Weil, Gotshal & Manges will also begin working remotely en masse—or in Weil’s case, in shifts. Baker McKenzie is closing all its offices across the United States and in Toronto. Other firms, such as Buckley, are enacting “optional” remote-work plans.
