Law firms — ones in DC, especially — are so steeped in tradition that they’ve always seemed to us the last frontier of any radical changes in workplace design. But the way we work is changing and, slowly but surely, we’re starting to these organizations adopt new ideas. We hosted our most recent talk at Nixon Peabody’s DC office — one of the firms that has, essentially, removed their glasses, let down their hair, and designed a space that more fully aligns with their values and goals.
