Editor’s note: This report is the first part in a series about how the pandemic has changed lawyers’ work schedules and billable hours.

The pandemic has ushered in an era in which attorneys, for one reason or the other, are working erratic hours as lines between home and work have evaporated and an unprecedented boom in work pushes firm attorneys to their limits.

Law firms in turn are trying everything: job sharing, extra vacation and huge bonuses to accommodate as burnout and retention issues loom.
