February 1, 2022
JD Supra recently published an article by Leopard Solutions on “What Law Firms Can Learn From the Unprecedented Hiring Market of 2021.” The article is an excerpt from Leopard’s recently published 2021 State of the Legal Industry Report.
The article features insights from legal professionals, including Trish Lilley, CMBDO of Stroock, Stroock & Lavan; Michael Short, law firm strategist at LawVision LLC and Laura Leopard, CEO and founder at Leopard Solutions.
As Laura noted in the article, “We look to data to tell a story such as what happened and why. We have measured the great hiring pause of 2020 and the hiring resurgence of 2021. We have seen law firms adapt to a pandemic world and prosper. Now the question is, what will they become post pandemic? Lessons learned by necessity could be forgotten as the world returns to a new normal. A hiring frenzy and salary raises are reaching new highs, but it is not sustainable in the long term. Firms are beginning to see workers embrace a ‘work to live’ rather than ‘live to work’ motto. This could be the greatest threat to the old law firm model. Will they adapt again to survive?”
