A playbook on how to manage law firm employees in a flexible or hybrid work environment has yet to emerge, according to industry observers and law firm executives.

While many Big Law firms like Blank Rome are investing in office upgrades intended to incentivize a return to the office, other firms like Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr have put in place arrangements that emphasize in-office collaboration on certain agreed-upon days. Others like McNees Wallace & Nurick have passed on the formulation of a hybrid work schedule to individual practice group and office leaders.
