Legal Recruitment: Industry Updates Amidst Covid-19 Pandemic

As the Director of Legal Recruitment, I actively source for high-level legal positions. From Senior Partners, IT attorneys to senior-level Corporate Paralegals. I also engage in business development with the largest, most prestigious international law firms in the world. I work exclusively with firms who bring in healthy 9-figure revenues each year and work with the most well-known institutions on the planet. Whether you’re a billion-dollar startup or a global investment bank, you’re going to need the right representation and my clients have you covered. With an entire department filled with legal recruiters with proper legal education, we’re able to build on these world-class departments with only the most top-performing legal professionals. Here at Phoenix, we’re able to work with organizations that are revolutionizing the world as we know it!

Keep looking for that next role!

With activity like this, you would think that there was nothing that could slow us down…and then COVID-19 happened. While our clients are still leading in every industry, the precautionary measures centered around COVID-19 have appeared to make legal professionals more cautious about looking for that new and glamorous opportunity, even if that career move will allow them to do the best work of their lives. Since we became aware of this global pandemic, we noticed that “hot” positions became somewhat chilly, and we had to inform our best candidates that their interview had either been put on hold or their start date had been postponed. Alarming, right? Wrong!

How is the market really changing?

COVID-19 has presented us all with an opportunity to change the way we drive business. From Zoom conferencing to phone and Skype preliminary interviews without any true face-to-face interaction, everyone is wondering, “What’s next?” Our clients have been around since the 1800s and this certainly isn’t a situation they are necessarily new to. You don’t become the world’s most prestigious international law firm by chance! The upper-level executives in these organizations are utilizing this time to put together strategic game plans for when they reopen their doors. Places like this aren’t going to be scrambling to get “caught up” once things get back to normal; in fact, these structural changes are going to ensure that they remain at the tip-top by implementing innovative processes while not skipping a single beat!

While this is uncharted territory for many of us, rest assured that these STELLAR law firms are plowing forward while keeping everyone safe and healthy. 2020 will be the year that every legal professional has the opportunity to truly change the world with their legal expertise…they may just have that added bonus of doing it in their pajamas!
