Bright Lights, Big City…………Birmingham?

Oh yes!!

Birmingham is booming with regeneration and heavy investment and boasts a number of prestigious law firms who are all trying to attract high calibre lawyers out of the capital.

Many national law firms have bounced back after the ‘dip’ during the downturn reporting strong turnovers and the highest number of partnership promotions. Pricing pressure continues and national firms are seeing an increase in work derived from the City going to regional city offices.

These firms are looking to strengthen their regional teams with a number of mid-level hires across various commercial sectors with city based lawyers being particularly sought after.

For lawyers looking to leave London, there couldn’t be a better time for you to consider regional opportunities with national law firms. Whilst there will inevitably be a differential in salary, the quality of caseload and quality of life are certainly the main selling points for relocation.
