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.
