A. An Opportunity for Change

The global community is facing an unprecedented challenge fighting the outbreak of COVID-19 and looking for an appropriate response to the consequences of the pandemic. Like many other industries, the legal industry had to switch gears significantly. We have seen law firms scaling down, suspending partner payments and furloughing employees. Following a brief moment of shock and adaptation, most teams managed the transition into home offices, and the use of various technologies led to an explosion of webinars, online events, virtual meetings and daily briefings. Forced to adapt to this new reality, the legal workplace environment and approaches to communication have changed in unprecedented ways. With pandemic-related lockdowns being gradually lifted in many parts of the world, we now can and must define how “the new normal” should look.
