Nick reports that 2020 was a quiet year for C&I legal hiring, affected directly by pandemic and the crashing of oil prices, which had a significant impact on the energy sector, and the subsequent knock-on effect for other industries.
As we rapidly approach the midpoint of 2021, the market has picked up considerably across C&I, with numerous roles being released each day. The Pharmaceutical and Technology markets continue to be buoyant, as they were in 2020, and we are beginning to see a rise in hiring activity across other sectors including Energy/Oil & Gas.
With the Covid vaccine being rolled out and market confidence growing, we expect to see increased activity for the duration of 2021.
