The Times reports that some very large law firms are considering introducing more flexible working. Blimey–progress!
All our (specialist divorce lawyers) people have worked flexibly and at home since 1996 when this firm was started. It works.
It has no connection with part time working, I assure you! Indeed it allows the 2+ hours often wasted on the commute to be useful–that may be usefully working or usefully resting or usefully in relationships.
Good lawyers (good professionals) do not need to be told when they need to work. They know.
