WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
STAYING AWAY – If Atlanta is any indication, it seems the contingent of lawyers and law firm staff itching to get back into the office remains the minority. As Meredith Hobbs reports, most firms in the city reopened their offices for voluntary reentry in June, but so far most attorneys and employees have opted to stay put at home. For example, at Bryan Cave, according to local managing partner Eric Schroeder, only about 20 or 25 of the firm’s 190 lawyers and staff are coming in each day. But, as was the case back in June, firms aren’t pushing the issue either. “Anyone can come into the office, but we’re not encouraging that,” Schroeder said. “It’s perfectly fine for people to stay home.” Fisher Phillips’ chairman Roger Quillen, meanwhile, said his firm has “made no effort to move back to working normally in our Atlanta office.”
