Law360 (May 22, 2020, 6:56 PM EDT) -- COVID-19 has forced BigLaw firms to abandon their opulent offices and transform their lawyers into remote workers, pushing many firm leaders to question the enormous price they pay for high-end real estate.

On this week's episode of Pro Say, Law360 Senior Reporter Brandon Lowrey joins us to break down what the post-pandemic law office might look like.

Each week on Pro Say, Law360 staffers Amber McKinney, Bill Donahue and Alex Lawson bring you inside the newsroom and explain what you need to know about key legal developments.

Also this week, we dive into a looming eviction crisis in New York City housing court, as attorneys for both tenants and landlords carefully eye a new executive order amending rules for commercial and residential evictions during the coronavirus pandemic.

We also touch on a reported potential merger between Uber and Grubhub that has sparked criticism from a top House democrat, who said this week the move "marks a new low in pandemic profiteering."

Finally, we end with a federal judge on the Court of International Trade who refuses to stop quoting movies in his opinions.
