The legal market is experiencing wide variances in growth, with many seeing double-digit growth (largely US firms) and others seeing declines due to the value of the pound and inability to provide services aligned to market demand. Those firms specialising in risk and compliance, IT, HR, finance and business change were best able to capitalise on market opportunities and experience growth.
More firms are moving their operations to regional hubs, resulting in lawyers and legal professionals either being moved or accelerating hiring outside of the Capital. This has increased legal salaries in the regions.
Demand for legal professionals continue to outstrip supply, resulting in opportunities for those looking to advance their careers. Average legal salaries are on the rise with those in corporate, commercial and construction law experiencing the strong prospects.
