NO VACANCY - As law firms look for ways to decrease their physical footprints amid the rise of remote work, they’re increasingly exploring hoteling options, in which lawyers and staff don’t have permanently assigned workspaces. But while reducing the overall square footage of a firm’s space can be a welcome profit-booster, it remains to be seen whether partners will ultimately be willing to part with their own personal offices altogether. In this week’s Law.com Trendspotter column, we examine the variety of reasons that hoteling may be a difficult sell for many senior partners—from ego to confidentiality to the fact that it’s maybe kind of gross. I’m interested to get your thoughts: is hoteling and office sharing the wave of the future or will partners ultimately push back on the prospect of losing their personalized spaces?
