The go-go-go lifestyle of a Big Law attorney can be dangerous to your health. That’s what experts and insiders are saying. All those decades of putting work before everything else can finally take its toll on attorneys, who are already in a supercharged work environment. For their part, though, large law firms are finally responding by promoting mental health and wellness, and remote work.
But is it a case of too little, too late? For instance, as industry leaders profess to be more attuned to and concerned about those issues than ever before, their inability to convince lawyers and staff that it’s actually OK to decelerate once in awhile is a major hindrance to finding lasting solutions, according to a recent story by Zack Needles.
