When the pandemic sent everyone in Big Law home in March 2020, it was a seismic shift in work, but one that had a clear reasoning behind it, and, oddly, was remarkably uniform in execution for all involved. The return to the office is much more complicated, and it isn’t just about logistics.   

Individual family situations, health issues and geography will of course be part of the equation. But what also will factor is the relative needs of attorneys at various stages in their respective careers and what they stand to gain, or lose, from returning to the office.
