Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, India’s largest law firm, has announced a flexible working policy which allows teams to work in a combination of onsite and offsite arrangements.

The dynamic working policy sets out five models ranging from work-from-office to work-from-anywhere and combinations of the two.

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, the firm has a work-from-home policy until Mar. 31, 2021. The new working policy will be implemented after that.

The new policy was formulated after conducting multiple surveys with the firm’s lawyers, future lawyers (including law students from 16 law schools) and other stakeholders, with the majority expressing a strong preference for flexibility in ways of working.

“We have adopted dynamic working models that are aligned with the future of work, built on a world class digital infrastructure and aimed towards enhancing productivity and our talent experience,” said Cyril Shroff, managing partner of Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas, in a statement. “We are ready to bring in the transformative change to lead the legal industry.”
