The past year has been one for the record books. A few months ago, the pandemic seemingly began to recede as vaccination rates increased. Offices started to reopen, and people emerged from their homes with high hopes for a return to normal.
And then the arrival of the Delta variant changed everything. Reopening plans were put on hold, and people began to wear masks again, with visions of normalcy fading away. COVID infections are up, and as a result, employers are now grappling with whether to shift back to remote work entirely or to implement a hybrid workplace. In-person interactions are being really reduced, and the future is once again plagued with uncertainty.
Not surprisingly, the practice of law has not been immune from all these changes.
