Flexibility in office design
A recent article from Law.com highlighted the office issues that the COVID-19 pandemic have caused law firms across the country. Due to the new emphasis of social distancing, the modern design trends of a law firm have to emphasize flexibility.
A flexible law firm is one that can make the necessary changes to its design at a moment’s notice. Your law firm’s design cannot be rigid, because you do not know how long you will have to employ social distancing.
Partition and distancing options
With spatial awareness being an utmost priority, you law firm may need to assess the positioning of key sections of your office. If your office is smaller or does not have the opportunity to separate lawyers and legal staff by individual rooms, it may be necessary to install some type of partition, in order to create a barrier between clients and attorneys.
If that is not an option for your firm, you may need to situation the chairs of the clients further from the desks, in order to create a recommended distance between the two parties.
Attorneys, staff, clients require comfort
