It’s no surprise that COVID-19 has shifted our day-to-day lives. Everything from going to the grocery store to connecting with others is a different experience than it used to be. For lawyers, however, the daily activity that has been affected most by the pandemic is the way we work.

Jay Linder’s law office transitioned into a remote workforce early on in the year. With the increased desire to stay connected with one another during a time of turmoil, the added element of humanity that crisis has brought to the world at large, and help from technology like Zoom, Jay believes the transition was for the better. But does this mean that the way the legal industry works has changed for good?

Join Elise Holtzman and Jay Linder, the Director of Marketing and Communications at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton, in this episode of The Lawyer’s Edge as they talk about the different challenges and opportunities that the legal industry has faced this year. Jay shares his thoughts on law as a relationship business, his techniques for talent development, and what he is keeping in mind for the year to come.
