Robert Half Legal has issued a press release with the results of its latest specialty area survey question answered by 300 attorneys from large Canadian and U.S. law firms and corporations.
“Economic conditions continue to fuel demand for specialists in bankruptcy and litigation,” said Charles Volkert, executive director of Robert Half Legal. “These specialties are broad in scope, since they are not restricted to specific industries or client types. Their wide reach, combined with the complex financial issues that individuals and businesses face, may result in ongoing demand in this area.”
Volkert added that the need for legal professionals is especially strong within small-to-midsize firms. “The uptick in litigation for insurance defense, personal injury, labor and employment, medical malpractice, and foreclosure is driving the need for experienced professionals in these areas,” he said.
