BCL Legal’s in-house team has reported a surge in activity for the first six months of 2014 and is citing an upturn in the economy as the primary driver. The company is seeing a strong performance across all regions and is working with clients from the North East (Newcastle Building Society) all the way to the South Coast (Marlin Financial Services).
Clients that the in-house team at BCL Legal has assisted in the first six months of the year include: Arriva, ASDA, Siemens Power, BAE Systems, Balfour Beatty, Bank of America, BUPA, Daisy Communications, Manchester United, Pets at Home, James Fisher, Sports Direct, Alliance Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy, Compass, Lafarge Tarmac, Moslon Coors, Wolseley, Nissan, Randstad, Pegasystems and Salesforce.com.
Mark Levine, director and head of BCL Legal’s in-house team, said: “It’s great to see a diverse range of sectors looking to recruit in-house lawyers including across the financial services, manufacturing, retail and telecoms industries.
Mark added: Having been working the in-house market non-stop since 2001, we have a long history and an in-depth of knowledge of the candidate lawyer ‘talent pool’. With more companies recruiting, the availability of applicable lawyers does become an issue. When it comes to suggesting lawyers to the companies that we are working with, for us it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality and finding the right person for the job.”
