The coronavirus pandemic has caused a major shift in how we live, work, and manage our careers. The legal industry is no exception. As the pandemic has unfolded, it has driven lawyers and legal staff to accept and embrace technology as the work has shifted from the office to working remotely from home.
A Shift in Attitude
As we’ve all gotten used to working from home for the past several months, a survey from Loeb Leadership revealed that 67% of lawyers and law firm staff are enjoying working from home and want to continue once offices reopen following the pandemic.
The online poll of 25 firms conducted in mid-May found that nearly 7 in 10 people working in firms that were surveyed want to continue remote work, at least a few days a week, even after the all-clear is given and it’s safe to return to the office.
The Key Lies with Technology
For those lawyers and legal staff who want to continue to work from, home, work at the office, or prefer some combination of the two, the key lies in technology.
At TSG we have the technology and solutions to empower lawyers from wherever they choose to work. We offer solutions that keep lawyers connected with their clients and support staff, even when they can’t be together in person.
