The Sheffield legal market: for job seeking lawyers and paralegals

Sheffield is on the up. The steel industry that put Sheffield on the map may be long gone, but like many Northern cities, it's undergoing a transformation in a bid to reinvent itself. I absolutely love the city, which is why I’m so passionate about recruiting for lawyers within the area or those looking to relocate.   Sheffield offers fantastic support to opportunities and excellent quality work that competes with the likes of London, Manchester and Birmingham.

Courts and Law Society

The city is a District Registry of the High Court and has an established Law Society that actively supports the local legal community. The SheffieldJLD is over 600 members strong.

Business and vibrancy

In addition, the local area has seen an influx of new businesses that are attracting more and more people to the city; making it a must consider destination for anyone who wants to experience vibrant city living and a successful legal career.

Firms in Sheffield

There’s a wide variety of law firms to chose from, including leading international firms: DLA Piper and CMS; national law firms such as Irwin Mitchell and Freeths; and regional heavyweights: Keebles, Taylor and Emmet and Lupton Fawcett.

Decisions, decisions

Deciding where to start your legal career is one of the most important decisions you'll make, or maybe you’re seeking change and considering a relocation. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate smaller Northern cities.

If you‘d like to explore Sheffield’s legal market in further detail, please get in touch by calling 0113 323 4908, or alternatively, you can reach me via email at joannaleaver@bcllegal.com.
