SHOTS ALL AROUND? -  Davis Wright Tremaine was the first—and, so far, only—Am Law firm to publicly say it would mandate vaccination for attorneys who want to return to the office. And now it’s looking like they may not have much company. As Law.com’s Dylan Jackson reports, few Am Law 200 firms appear to be following Davis Wright’s lead as the legal industry gears up for an expected return to in-person work by the second half of the year. Fish & Richardson, McGuireWoods, Stoel Rives and Shook Hardy have all said they will likely not require proof of vaccination as a condition to returning to their offices. Firms such as Proskauer Rose and Debevoise & Plimpton, meanwhile, have yet to decide. The trend tracks with a recent study by Gartner, which surveyed 236 human resources, legal, compliance and privacy leaders in December 2020 and January 2021, and found that only 8% of respondents said they will require their employees to get a COVID vaccines, though roughly 71% said they would “encourage” vaccination.
