Law firms seem to be encountering pushback from every direction when it comes to communicating what their office return policies will look like—you can only keep some people happy all of the time, and all people happy some of the time.

Some firms already have looked to tweak their messaging, and it’s not even September, the target date many have set for more regular in-office attendance. Paul Hastings, which initially announced that people should plan to be in office “by default” at the end of May, walked that back in late June after some internal confusion as to what that meant. At least one other Am Law 100 firm delayed its own back-to-office policy announcement after Morgan Stanley CLO Eric Grossman last week asked that the company’s outside counsel push for in-office returns.
