Legal workspaces are evolving, combining physical office spaces, ‘work anywhere’ and better technology to knit the two together.
Most kinds of knowledge businesses (not only law firms) are fundamentally rethinking how work is done. New working practices capitalise on the benefits of remote working while resolving the challenges involved. Models gaining traction involve a mix of repurposed office spaces, better approaches to remote work and better technology-enabled processes to help the firm’s people collaborate effectively and optimise performance. This session will examine ‘best practice’ as it is emerging today, and speculate about how trends will unfold over the next three to five years.
