Q4 market report

Our analytics show that in Q4, despite the fears over what type of Brexit (if any) we are going to see on 29th March, the market remains bullish. Certainly the demand for Real Estate, Commercial/IT, and Corporate lawyers remains as busy as ever.


What practice areas are in demand?What seniority of candidate is required?

There is a still a healthy demand across the country, with London remaining at the centre of this, but the percentage of roles in key regional cities has increased as many national firms continue to dilute their traditional London focus.
