You can set the required fields by adding the following code to your functions.php file:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_fields', 'arrow_design_woo_filter_checkout_fields' );

function arrow_design_woo_filter_checkout_fields( $fields ) {
// Billing fields
$fields['billing']['billing_company']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_email']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_phone']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_state']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_first_name']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_last_name']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_address_1']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_address_2']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_city']['required'] = true;
$fields['billing']['billing_postcode']['required'] = true;

// Shipping fields
$fields['shipping']['shipping_company']['required'] = true;
$fields['shipping']['shipping_phone']['required'] = true;
$fields['shipping']['shipping_state']['required'] = true;
$fields['shipping']['shipping_first_name']['required'] = true;
