Like most law firms, big and small, lawyers and staff at McGuireWoods made
changes in the way they practiced law during the pandemic, many of which
will continue to shape the law firm model going forward, Raleigh office
Mary Nash Rusher told North Carolina Lawyers Weekly in a
June 28, 2022, article.
The story described how law firms across North Carolina are adapting their
workplaces post-COVID-19. Many firms discovered some of the measures taken
during the pandemic have led to new and better ways to operate.
Rusher said that McGuireWoods’ firm culture is relationship-driven,
internally and externally. In some ways, the remote work environment helped
Raleigh lawyers build stronger, deeper relationships with lawyers in other
offices and the shift bodes well for the future, she said.
Rusher also noted that McGuireWoods’ Raleigh office, which opened in the
then-brand new downtown
FNB Building just two months before pandemic-related restrictions went into effect, has
a modern, open floor plan that helps with social distancing and provides a
welcoming, light-filled space for people who are in the office.
