Firms across the nation are very suddenly learning how to work from home to protect the safety of attorneys and staff and to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Many consumer protection law firms have already been working remotely and determined that it can be more cost effective, efficient, productive, and enjoyable than operating out of a traditional office. Our firm has operated virtually for more than seven years, and this webinar will share our perspective and offer tips to firms that are suddenly forced to work from home now or in the coming days.
