It appears that junior attorneys in Big Law are coming into the office more frequently than their more senior counterparts in the initial stages of the legal industry’s return to the physical workplace.

As opposed to senior associates and partners, first-, second- and third-year attorneys tend to travel less for work, live in more isolated conditions and small apartments without children or family, especially those who live in the city, and many have yet to step foot in the high-rises many law students envision when they land their first Big Law job.
