Minneapolis' SmithGroup makes law offices homey
An article in Legal Times reports a trend among big law firms: Dump the traditional trappings in favor of "soft seating, unique lighting and funky art." One big reason for the change is recruitment. Firms want to appear hip to young, brainy law school grads. Another reason: Those grads will be pouring over briefs and depositions for more than eight hours per day. Jodie Leppa of SmithGroup in Minneapolis is quoted as saying that firms "want to make them as comfortable as possible while they're doing that."
