A host of top law firms have begun formulating plans for a return to their U.K. offices, including surveying staff and drawing up transition strategies.

Firms including Norton Rose Fulbright, Travers Smith, Ashurst and Osborne Clarke have all  confirmed that planning is in progress for an eventual return to the office, subject to government guidelines. Others, such as White & Case and Taylor Wessing, are among those surveying their staff about the topic.
