Debevoise & Plimpton has delayed its Oct. 11 initial return-to-office phase for U.S. and European personnel to Nov. 8 while also announcing that it is offering more flexibility for those in certain situations—joining a growing list of firms who have moved away from an October return.

Debevoise has developed a return-to-office policy that incorporates several ramp up phases. The first ramp-up phase, in which personnel are “strongly encouraged” to work one to two days in the office per week, was slated to begin Monday.
