WHAT WE’RE WATCHING

A SHOT IN THE ARM? - Recent good news on the progress of COVID-19 vaccines has Big Law leaders feeling optimistic—but still in no rush to adopt new mandates or revise remote work policies that have defined the pandemic, Andrew Maloney reports. Instead, they’re taking more of a wait-and-see approach. Butler Snow COO Rance Sapen said he hopes his firm eventually gets to the point where it can assist its staff and attorneys in getting COVID-19 vaccinations the same way it currently does with flu shots. But for now, that seems to still be a ways down the road. “We don’t know enough about the timing and how it’s going to be distributed, and how accessible it’s going to be across our firm,” Sapen said. Similarly, don’t expect mandatory vaccine policies at your firm any time soon—or possibly ever. “You’re talking about lawyers here,” said legal management consultant Brad Hildebrandt, adding, “I don’t think anyone is going to make a quick determination on that, or whether you could even do it legally.”
