It has been almost seven months since the COVID-19 virus has forced much of the American economy to either shut down (in some part) or work remotely. As I write this article, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that almost 9 million jobs remain lost and that as many as 6 million of those jobs will never return. Fifteen percent of all small business in the United States have closed permanently with more closing every day.

Against this backdrop, more and more firms are reporting that 2020 will still be a good year and for an increasing number of law firms 2020 will be a very good year.
