The ranking of ‘Best Law Offices to Work’ is published by Great Place to Work®
Before the pandemic, law firms were already faced with an unavoidable challenge: to become more attractive as employers and to have the brightest professionals. From now on, digitization, innovation and the war for talents constitute a fundamental axis for the activity of law firms.
The legal profession, with centuries of history, is no longer foreign to this process of cultural transformation that certain firms have already put on the table. Culture is and will be a competitive advantage so that the legal sector can cope with more disruptive business models.
This forced adaptation to change is compounded by fierce competition in the market to attract top talent. The main asset of a law firm is the human capital, excellence and quality of service residing, after all, in the professionals who provide such service.
And if until a few years ago, companies considered remuneration as one of their main claims to attract the best professionals, with the prestige of the brand or of the customers, today concepts such as teleworking appear on the board. , especially among the millennial generation, physical and mental well-being, conciliation, flexibility, etc.
