Casual Dress Casualties

Casual Dress Is History At NY Firm

Lawyers in the New York office of Greenberg Traurig were informed by e-mail last Wednesday afternoon that because the “mood and business climate in [the legal market had] changed since the heyday of the tech boom,” the firm would be reverting to a business-formal dress code effective April 1.

I think that casual dress, outside of client contact, makes for a more comfortable and productive workplace, but lawyers in suits can bill more than lawyers in khakis.
