“Having gotten through the first quarter of the New Year, it is clear that the market for lawyers at large firms continues to change, and continues to flourish. We have seen significant advances in marketability for certain practice areas that had previously been lagging behind, while a bevy of corporate and finance transactional practices continue to thrive.”

San Francisco:

“Just as reported in my Fall 2006 report, SF and Bay Area firms are still growing, expanding, adding new practice areas, fleshing out their existing practices, and merging. Yet, we cannot call this a “hot” market now for two reasons, the nature of law firm hiring has fundamentally changed, and litigation practice has reached its apogee for the time being. “
Los Angeles:

“The beginning of 2007 has been hot, hot, hot! We have been getting requests, almost daily, from firms of all sizes to help them with their lateral hiring needs. Los Angeles firms, located downtown as well as on the Westside, are actively hiring lateral associates at all levels in almost all practice areas.”
