					National Law Journal Survey Shows Midsized Firms Planning to Add
Attorneys
BCG Attorney Search seconds the report released by The National Law Journal which shows
that midsized firms are planning to add more attorneys.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2012 -- Firms with fewer than 400 attorneys are planning to add more
attorneys. This was reported in a recently released report by The National Law Journal.

Legal recruitment firm BCG Attorney Search’s law firm jobs data also shows a similar trend with an increasing
number of legal job openings in midsized firms over the past 12 months.

Most of the hiring in these midsized law firms are expected to be in litigation, with almost one-fifth of the firms
expecting to add lateral attorneys in this practice area. BCG Attorney Search is also currently trying to fill up
492 litigation attorney jobs for its law firm clients across the country.

While corporate work has emerged as the second highest hiring sector per NLJ, legal recruiters at BCG
Attorney search report more job openings in this sector than even in litigation. BCG Attorney Search has been
tasked with filling up 763 corporate attorney jobs for law firms across the country, several of whom are
midsized firms.

The legal recruiters at BCG Attorney Search report that the attorney job market in Los Angeles and Washington
DC is expanding at a healthy pace.

Managing Director Liz Hudson, who manages the firm’s LA market says, “Los Angeles, like the rest of the
country, continues to have an increasing need for general corporate associates.” BCG is looking to fill in 157
attorney jobs in Los Angeles.

Robyn Ginsberg, who handles the firm’s D.C. office as Senior Managing Director says that DC law firms are
continuing to focus on corporate candidates with a more varied practice base rather than a niche sub-specialty.
Ginsberg adds that the firm is trying to get 240 attorneys from various practice areas for its clients in
Washington D.C.
