Law Firms Are Adjusting Their Lawyer Staffing and Promotion Strategy, According to Leopard Solutions’ Data

December 19, 2022

JD Supra recently published a Leopard Solutions’ article on law firm staffing strategy.

The article cites our recent job data about how although promotions have increased in Big Law, there has been a decline in associate headcount from this same point last year, and explores what this may suggest.

In January 2021, for instance, the Top 200 were up 4% in associate headcount, while presently associate headcount has declined. Leopard Solutions’ recent research on the legal hiring market, which can be viewed in our 2022 Job Market Update, shows that market corrections are happening and that law firms are adjusting their hiring strategy.
