The article discusses the plan of law firm Norton Rose to put all its staff and partners on a four-day week work as an initiative for saving jobs. The author says that it will be problematic because, while internally it may be a good morale, but externally clients could be less understanding if their trusted legal adviser is no longer on call. Meanwhile, a consultant asserts that using the option for people to keep long term does make sense if they are going to be flexible.
