The end of the COVID-19 pandemic is nowhere in sight yet, but it’s already becoming evident that there could be some lasting repercussions for the legal industry long after the business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders associated with the virus resolve. For law firms, corporate legal departments and tech providers alike, the biggest change could be adapting to a legal ecosystem that is more interconnected even as its workforce becomes increasingly distributed.

“I don’t think that there’s a return back to normal. I think that the way we do our daily business will change fundamentally,” said Tomu Johnson, of counsel at Parsons Behle & Latimer and CEO of the firm’s tech subsidiary, Parsons Behle Lab.
