Norton Rose Fulbright to implement 50% remote working policy

updated on 04 January 2021

International firm Norton Rose Fulbright will introduce a new hybrid working policy, allowing staff to work remotely for up to 50% of the time once the pandemic has passed. Linklaters and Taylor Wessing have also introduced agile working strategies

While staff at Norton Rose Fulbright have benefited from the flexibility of remote working, they also value “collaboration with colleagues and clients”, according to Managing Partner Peter Scott.

The hybrid working policy will be introduced across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, giving partners and staff the opportunity to work from home for up to 50% of the time. The firm will continue to develop the policy, with individual, team and client needs being considered.

Scott said: “We believe our new hybrid model will allow us to retain the best elements of remote and in-office working, providing our people with a more dynamic working environment.”
