In normal times, the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher maintains what Helgi Walker calls a “strong in-office culture,” with lawyers favoring in-person meetings over teleconferences.

“I think a lot of firms do a lot of working from home as a regular matter,” said Walker, a Gibson Dunn partner who leads the firm’s administrative law and regulatory practice group. “But we have an in-office culture because we think it’s important to be there together, to just see each other and bounce ideas off of each other.”
