Tim Shearin Quoted in Law360 on Impact of Remote Work on Connecticut Legal Landscape


Pullman & Comley Litigation attorney James T. (Tim) Shearin, who is the incoming president of the Connecticut Bar Association, moderated a panel at the CBA’s Connecticut Legal Conference on June 10 focused on the changing landscape for law firms.  An article in Law360 covered the discussion, which addressed the impact of remote work on Connecticut law firms, both in terms of recruiting and firm culture.

According to Tim, who served as Pullman & Comley’s chair from 2013-2022, there is a greater opportunity for suburban law firms to serve as local counsel in BigLaw cases based outside major cities. He also noted that while Connecticut has remote lawyers working in city-based firms, they don’t necessarily “care about becoming Connecticut lawyers.”

Other topics covered in the panel, which included William Johnston of legal consulting firm W. Johnston Associates, included emerging hot markets for legal talent, growing practice group areas, and attributes of successful firms.
