More details have emerged about Ropes & Gray‘s move to a mandatory four days a week in the office this fall, as the firm confirmed the new schedule also applies to associates in the firm’s London and Dublin offices, and said lawyers in Asia offices have returned to pre-pandemic norms, which was five days a week.

In a memo on Thursday, firm leaders informed lawyers that they would be required to work from the office Monday through Thursday, beginning on Nov. 6, but Friday would remain an optional in-office day. The Am Law 100 firm joined a number of Big Law firms moving to a mandatory four days in the office for lawyers.
