|Lawtrades||Jul 15, 2020|
Speaking of new work patterns: The Association of Corporate Counsel released a new survey of 5,000 of its members showing that remote work has been a big change for in-house attorneys -- and that it could last much longer than the pandemic.
2 key takeaways
90% of counsel surveyed said their company adjusted its WFH policy during the last four months.
Here’s the big one: About 47% of counsel believed the adjusted WFH policy will likely stay the same going forward.
The biggest future change
Probably business travel. Many respondents said they expected once-common trips to cease even after the pandemic.
Before the pandemic, some 20% of in-house counsel felt comfortable with video conferencing. Now it’s about 70%.
Counsels’ preferred vendor is not the much-discussed Zoom. It’s actually Microsoft Teams, according to the survey.
