Legal Trends For 2021

Yeah, it's mid-April 2021. Did any of us think we would still be dealing with remote work, closed or semi-closed offices, and the continuation of the pandemic? I certainly didn't. Our daughter was out of town when it all started hitting the fan. She was literally at the airport, heading home when word came down that her university was going remote for a month. And from there? Well, I loved having her home. Her? Not so much. All for the right reasons.

So how do the continuing effects of the pandemic affect the rest of 2021? Here are the top trends we see that affect the legal profession for the rest of this year... and beyond.
