Many large law firms are pivoting toward a hybrid workplace when attorneys and staff return to the office. But it’s less clear that they’ve begun thinking carefully about how to manage a space that’s bound to be more focused on collaborative work.
A new survey of 30 Am Law 200 firms from office support provider Forrest Solutions found that 90% had settled on a hybrid policy and 58% had set return dates. But of those with set dates, 83% did not have documented plan to address key details in the return to office, such as meeting room management, visitor screening and workstation moves. That’s matters because the nature of work in the office is now bound to be different from what it looked like pre-pandemic, and law firms need to boost the appeal of shared space to make it work in the long run.
