What Do Millennials Really Want?

I’ve got an unfortunate bit of news for you prestige-hounds in the audience: The palatial “corner office” may be on its way out. While this is surely a source of chagrin for baby-boomer lawyers nation-wide, Nixon Peabody’s DC offices are confident it will be a boon for millennials.

Perhaps in imitation of California’s start-up culture, many firms are opting to throw out the classic model of imposing marble reception desks with modest associate setups and coruscating , large-windowed, partner offices. In its place is a more democratic, open, and communal office environment focused on equity and collaboration. In the case of Nixon Peabody, the aesthetic is completed with a massive wall of television sets, which fill the quixotic millennial’s bright, wide eyes all day long with tales of the firm’s pro bono beneficence.
