Hope Street Friends, a decade-old child care facility in downtown Los Angeles sponsored by Munger, Tolles & Olson and private equity firm Oaktree Capital Management, reopened its doors Monday after a lengthy shutdown due to the pandemic. 

The facility is onsite for Munger, and it is utilized by other law firms with offices in downtown L.A., including Latham & Watkins and Goodwin Procter, as well as some financial firms in the district. It’s an example of the efforts some firms have made to better retain lawyers with child care responsibilities, especially women.
