Much of the pandemic is replete with examples of firms and experts proclaiming that the office of the past will stay in the past. And while many firms such as Perkins Coie, Snell & Wilmer and Nixon Peabody are reducing space as more attorneys shift to working remotely, plenty of law firms are reaffirming their commitment to their office space and, in some cases, even expanding.

Fried Frank, for example, has recommitted to its 400,000-square-foot Manhattan office at 1 New York Plaza. Greenberg Traurig gave up a floor in its new four-story office in One Vanderbilt in New York, while also announcing that it is expanding its Westchester County office and plans to open “one or two” more offices in Long Island.
