Mary Nash Rusher Discusses Post-Pandemic Office Culture in N.C. Lawyers Weekly

July 5, 2022

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 managing partner 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.
