As law firm attorneys and staff increasingly take advantage of hybrid and remote work, many clients actually prefer meeting their lawyers virtually rather than in person, according to a new report that raises another red flag for full-office return plans.

The report from legal technology company Clio found clients are 25% more likely (35% compared to 28%) to prefer virtual meetings over in-person meetings. Clio’s report is partly based on a survey of more than 1,100 legal professionals, almost 500 professionals from other industries and more 1,150 consumers of its cloud-based legal products who were surveyed this April and May.
