LawJobsPipeline.com – Robert Half Legal, the legal recruitment outfit, have announced the results from a survey of US law firms showing almost half intend increasing their recruitment in the year ahead. Only 2 per cent thought they would be reducing their intake.
Litigation, corporate governance and intellectual property were identified as the areas of law expected to experience the most growth. “Litigation occurs in every industry and is a practice area that continually produces a significant volume of work. Because case demands vary, however, law firms often supplement their full-time staff with project professionals to meet peak workloads,” a Robert Half executive said.
