Legal Recruiting and Employment in 2022

16th February 2022

The legal job market, recruiting and employment is changing rapidly.

Following the Pandemic, the legal recruiting market is at its most exciting moment in years.

In 2020, many firms put their recruitment on-hold when the Pandemic first hit.

It hit everywhere at the same time.

However, it bounced back really quickly; within 3-4 months.

August, September it started kicking back!

In 2022, most law firms and legal professional services are as busy as ever.

A lot of lawyers have found themselves in a jurisdiction that they weren’t expecting to be in.

Some lawyers have changed their careers.

With the global vaccination roll-out, law firms are realising that they’re experiencing immense growth and hiring based on the new busy period.

Law firms in the last 24 months have done a lot better than they expected.

The busyness is exciting, thrilling for lawyers!

If you’re a good lawyer and you want to move to a new opportunity, now is the time.

There is huge development in the corporate, transactional space and increasing competition in sign-ons and salaries.

So many interesting trends are emerging.

  • The rise of virtual law firms.
  • An increasing exit from BigLaw and promoting work-life balance.
  • Collaborative working.
  • Working from home. Remote working.
  • A push for mental health.
