This week’s podcast features business of law reporter Patrick Smith's conversation with Seth Zachary, chairman of Am Law 50 firm Paul Hastings. Zachary talks about how his firm is faring during the pandemic, including its aggressive pursuit of lateral hires at a time when many other law firms have been forced to make cuts. He also acknowledges that the success of remote work at law firms as a potential downside: the risk that partners will become disconnected from each other and that younger lawyers will lose out when it comes to training and development.
