Remote work in the U.S. is here to stay for a while in the legal industry amid the pandemic. So when are lawyers and staff expected to come back to the office? Not until 2021, according to several law firms.

Representatives for about a dozen big firms that were polled on the subject indicated they had set no target date for returning to U.S. offices. Several said they expected office attendance to be required in 2021, but others said the work-from-home option would continue “indefinitely,” or until a coronavirus vaccine is widely distributed.
