When Morgan Lewis chair Jami McKeon started as an associate at her firm 36 years ago, there were no alternative work arrangements. No flex time. No reduced hours. No working from home. But now, as law firms have adopted more progressive policies in a war for talent, things are changing.
On Tuesday, Morgan Lewis announced a new policy that will allow associates with at least two years experience in the firm’s US and UK offices to work from home up to two days a week. The program, which was beta tested in Los Angeles over the past several months, officially begins on May 1 and came after McKeon directed the firm’s advisory board to examine the issue.
