South West The Biggest Legal Hub Outside London
Demand for legal professionals in the South West has risen by 16% year-on-year.
Outside of London, the South West remains the biggest legal hub in the UK according to research from the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo).
Julie Selby, Membership Relations Manager at APSCo, said:
“Job availability is continuing to increase in the South West with firms in the region expanding and bringing on board new talent to manage increased demand.”
Job creation and growth of established law firms is on the rise. Leading advisory law firm, Greenaway Scott has launched a new Bristol office and Womble Dickinson is expanding its team to recruit more professionals.
Those within the law profession are now migrating towards the South West due to the opportunities firms are able to offer. Selby added that this increasing focus on new talent and opportunities
“offers confidence for future success and demonstrates the region as an attractive marketplace for investors.”
