Rising Attorney Jobs on BCG Attorney Search Website Reflects Findings by BLS
September 12, 2013
Pasadena, CA - Most attorneys aspire to be employed at top firms, earning huge paychecks. However, huge layoffs and dwindling jobs for attorneys had dampened the spirits of many. They had resorted to filling up non-traditional legal careers, on the basis of their bachelors' degree, and many students were deterred from taking up legal studies. In contrast to what the industry looked like between May and June, the latest employment situation statistics reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has brought some relief in August. The report shows that 2,700 new legal jobs were created. This reflected in an immediate rise in attorney jobs on the BCG Attorney Search website.
Today there are more than half a million lawyers in the country. Many of these are attorneys with over three years of experience looking for a new career challenge. The present robust business environment is giving the needed boost to the legal sector, which has culminated in more legal jobs.
Numerous lateral moves have been triggered since the onset of 2013. The move of Neil Barofsky, former Prosecutor in the Southern District of New York to Jenner & Block and the return of Oris Bershteyn to Skadden, Arps, Meagher & Flom as Of Counsel in the New York office are the most recent of these. But, surprisingly though several lateral moves are taking place on one hand, numerous attorneys are still fishing for permanent jobs on the other hand.
In a highly competitive legal world with seemingly lesser job option, professionals like new lawyer Scott Neal have accepted part-time offers. Certain attorneys with few years of experience have moved into solo-practices on being unable to find challenging legal opportunities. "At these times," Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer at BCG Attorney Search says, "it is best to get assistance of a wise legal recruiter."
BCG Attorney Search, for instance, helps attorneys to pick the right firm for their career progression. Combing through several marketing materials and websites, the legal recruiter brings thousands of jobs at one location to its website, offering visitors an array of legal opportunities.
