June 5, 2015
May has quickly come and gone, leaving many of us bewildered as to how half of the year has already passed us by. The vast majority of those juniors qualifying in September 2015 now have a much better idea of what area they’ll be qualifying into and where they’ll be plying their trade. Others, however, are still in the dark and nervously counting down the days to their qualification date. If you count yourself in the latter category, don’t panic – that is why we’re here: to provide you with an honest, pragmatic and unbiased view of your options.
It’s an exciting time to be a lawyer – the market has followed in the footsteps of the economy in going from strength to strength and there is real, tangible opportunity to develop for those ambitious and determined enough to seize it. For example, 2015 has seen us assist several NQs to make the most of their potential and successfully make the transition from smaller practices to Tier 1 Firms: yet another sign of the buoyancy of the legal market.
CapeClarke has historically had unparalleled success in advising NQs on their options upon qualification – in 2014, Chris, Terry and Nathan collectively placed more NQs in the Leeds market than any other agency. This year has been no different, with us placing our first NQ as early as February – we have continued this trend and have placed a significant number of others since.
If you would like to discuss this blog, have been thinking about a move or would just like some general advice about options in the market, please feel free to contact us on 0113 2385965.
