Arent Fox and Baker McKenzie are early movers in revealing their return to the office policies, and while the two firms are taking slightly different approaches, both seem to be emphasizing flexibility coupled with individual responsibility.

D.C.-headquartered Arent Fox is planning its phased-in, gradual return to the office will begin after the Independence Day weekend. From July 6 on, all offices around the country will be open, and throughout the month, firmwide managing partner Cristina Carvalho expects staff and lawyers will probably come in once a week, and then gradually twice a week.
