August 14, 2020 – Legal recruiting continues to be a hot area for search firms. Lawyers employed by government agencies in particular have been on the move in recent months, according to Hunt Scanlon Media. Employment of lawyers is projected to grow 10 percent through 2022. Demand for legal work is expected to be robust as individuals, businesses and all levels of government require legal services in the U.S. and internationally.
Recently, Austin, TX-based management consulting and executive search firm Calibrate Legal formed a partnership with The Tilt Institute, focusing on the recruitment of highly qualified business and competitive intelligence (BI and CI) professionals for roles within law firm clients.
