Less Books... More Law

Monday, 30 January 2012

It has been two weeks since we launched our new website, and the response has been fantastic to say the least! Candidates are continuing to apply for positions through the online portal and we are now working on 18 new positions in legal corporate recovery alone. Clearly, a spring cleaning of the website was a great way to start the New Year.

However, the ‘new’ does not end there. Introducing Harvey Sutton’s Twitter account. Hit Follow for interesting stories and the latest developments in our market specialisms.

We have also launched our new Linked In page, where you can connect with our Consultants and contact them regarding any requirements or questions you may have.

So what’s 2012 looking like so far? Well… industry trends in corporate recovery have been very interesting over the past month. We are receiving mixed reviews of the corporate recovery accountancy market from our clients, whilst we are seeing a big-demand for non-contentious restructuring lawyers. It will be interesting to see if this fluctuation levels out amongst the two arms of this sector…

On the other hand, demand for Pensions lawyers is exceptionally high, with many city firms strengthening their practice. Perhaps the legislative changes with auto-enrolment and the increase in work that should follow may be a factor behind this demand. Whether speculation or accurate, the fact remains that city firms with bespoke Pensions departments are actively recruiting, whereas firms with less of a presence in this sector are developing strong practices.

Our other specialist areas, including indirect tax and share schemes, are demonstrating a steady growth, with the rising strength of boutique firms being the one to watch,  most notably in VAT. Be sure to follow the latest news on Harvey Sutton Twitter.
