Phil Flora and Leopard Solutions Featured in Reuters Legal Article on Continued Legal Sector Jobs Growth
June 3, 2022
Phil Flora and Leopard Solutions data was featured in a Reuters Legal article, “Latest U.S. jobs report shows more legal sector growth in May.”
The article by reporter Sara Merken notes that while some industries are seeing a slowdown in hiring, the legal industry has remained resilient.
Some contributing factors to that include a continued shortage of legal talent and regulatory changes spurring legal work. In addition, a surge in corporate deal work in 2020 and 2021 continues to keep law firms busy and is boosting recruiting.
Phil, the Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Leopard, noted that throughout the first five months of 2022, law firm jobs have been opened and filled at about the same rate.
He also noted that Leopard saw a record high of 12,000 open legal job positions in January and we have seen that number remain relatively steady since then.
