A significant number of top-performing lawyers say they’d like to work fewer hours and reduce non-billable responsibilities, such as talent recruitment and marketing, according to a recent  industry survey.

Among 1,200 lawyers in 50 countries who were identified as “stand-out” attorneys, a small majority (53%) said they are satisfied with the hours they’re working, even as demand has increased during the pandemic. But 30% of respondents, led by younger lawyers and women attorneys, say they’d like to decrease the number of hours they’re putting in, the Thomson Reuters report found.
