Bankruptcy May Not Solve Your Clients' Problems

With the increase and proliferation of Native American and other casinos, as well as the advent of internet sports gambling, many of those suffering substantial losses are turning to a bankruptcy filing in order to obtain a “fresh start” by filing a Chapter 7 liquidation bankruptcy proceeding.

Competition for Legal Talent Drives Nail into Coffin of Five-Day, In-Office Work Week

Tripp Scott director and chief operating officer Paul Lopez initially asked his attorneys and staff to return to the office full time in July. Then, the delta variant hit, and the 48-lawyer law firm readopted its hybrid working model.

Nowadays, as Lopez plans for the future of Tripp Scott’s in-office working policies, he weighs aggressive competition from rival firms in his decision of whether to eventually ask everyone to return for a five-day, in-office work week.

“We have been successful in retaining employees and paralegals and associates, even though we know recruiters out there are trying to recruit them, because they know they have flexibility,” Lopez said in an interview. “I think that if we went back to five days (in-office) per week, that could have consequences for us because of how actively our competitors are trying to solicit employees with promises that they could work remotely. We’re trying to listen to the marketplace.”
