One of the big issues for law firms as they slowly emerge from the COVID pandemic is how to attract new talent and motivate associates to come back to the office. Texas Lawyer spoke recently with George H. Lugrin IV, shareholder, director and president of Hall Maines Lugrin in Houston, about this development and why it’s happening.

“Our firm is a small boutique or niche player that provides high-end commercial and coverage litigation, and advice,” Lugrin said. “We’ve been around for about 21 years now and we’ve developed our own little fit in the market and now have a practice that is worldwide because of what we do.”
