Shearman & Sterling is one of the latest firms to confirm a hybrid approach to remote work and office attendance, about a week after one of its top bank clients, Morgan Stanley, urged law firms to return to offices.

Like many of Morgan Stanley’s outside counsel firms, Shearman is asking “most” workers to come in three days a week but not full time. So far, there’s no indication that Shearman and other firms adjusted their policies in light of the Morgan Stanley letter. Law firm leaders and other industry observers said the bank’s statement alone hasn’t—so far—forced a broad rethinking of law firm return-to-work policies but that law firms are still keen on their clients’ input and remote working trends may shift later this year.
