BCG Attorney Search Confident about Escalation of Legal Employment Opportunities

October 23, 2013

Pasadena, CA - According to an article appearing in the Weekly Standard, Federal Court-appointed attorneys will face a pay cut by $15 per hour as an emergency move to preserve Federal Defender staffing by the Executive Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States. This news release indicates that reductions in the panel attorney compensation rates and payments will not be sustainable in the long run. With this decrease in compensation, many experienced and skilled attorneys may seek employment opportunities elsewhere. In this regard, BCG Attorney Search proves to be the most apt platform to conduct a legal job search. The legal recruitment firm reports more than 3,050 attorney and 514 partner opportunities on its website.

According to Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer at BCG Attorney Search, “attorney jobs are escalating in almost every area." He added, “We are experiencing a sudden increase in the job postings by the employers who are seeking skilled and experienced job seekers across the spectrum, and from those who service the private and public sectors." This recent data pair with Automatic Data Processing, Inc.'s (ADP) Regional Employment Report, which indicates that the South Atlantic region has seen an increase of more than 38,000 jobs added to the private employment sector. This region has generated the largest number of new private-sector jobs during the month of September, noting that Washington, D.C. has had a monthly change of 28% in private employment.

“Currently the legal job market is recuperating and exhibiting new opportunities in private law firms, public-interest organizations, and non-profits. We are continuously seeing a rise in attorney jobs across every practice area, even in the wake of the job curtailment and pay contraction resulting from the recent government shutdown,” said Barnes.

There are over 477 Litigation Attorney Jobs, 700 Corporate Attorney Jobs, and 157 Employment Attorney Jobs currently available on the site. To view jobs in other practice areas, visit
