Event description
Learn how law office design is undergoing a transformation that will impact the way the industry works.

About this Event

In recent years, the legal industry in North America has found itself swept up in a wave of disruption, with fast-paced changes coming via AI, big data, virtual assistants, outsourcing trends, increased competition and lack of client loyalty. On top of that, there's a growing need to support multi-disciplinary teams and the necessity of reconciling the diverse requirements of four generations of workers. By comparison, office design might not seem like a pressing concern — but there are crucial factors at work there, too.

Open concept offices have been a mainstream workspace design trend for several years now, but it's not always the go-to option for every industry. That applies to the legal sector in particular, with its traditional cellular offices and conventional workspace layouts proving to be a tradition they're reluctant to abandon. But retail real estate costs are at a premium, and office space in Vancouver doesn't come easy, so the need to do more with less will become a must for law firms.

And that's how the legal profession has found itself in the midst of a design controversy: do open concept offices work in fostering a freer work environment, or are they an unprofessional, overly casual detriment to lawyer and client confidentiality? Some firms have come to the conclusion that a hybrid design which incorporates elements of both open concept and traditional private offices is the next step for the legal business industry. In fact, the potential for greater efficiency and value of hybrid designs may come as a surprise for those willing to take a more flexible approach in their office layout options.

Come join our next Tenant Talks event on March 12 to hear from some of Vancouver's most influential legal players, and learn their views of how the evolution of the legal workplace can work for your law firm.
