If you are a Lawyer and considering returning home or relocating to Ireland, there has never been a better time.
Dublin’s thriving Private Practice Legal sector has attracted a number of international law firms while the local firms continue to experience strong growth. Workflow in most firms has intensified, in particular, in areas like Banking, Real Estate, Corporate M&A, Construction, Employment, Funds, Regulatory and IP. This has created a significant demand for specialists in these fields. The shortage of suitable candidates is a growing cause for concern for many clients. The uncertainty surrounding Brexit has very much created a ‘watch this space’ attitude amongst our clients with divided opinions on how the local hiring market will be affected. The demand for litigation solicitors remains consistent with a drop in the demand for Insurance Litigators and a slight spike in demand for FS/Regulatory Litigation specialists.
