Many are wondering what 2019 will hold, how best to prepare and what opportunities to look out for. With the Cambridge market boasting significant investment, and businesses both global and start-up leading in their field, the city’s legal teams, whether in-house or private practice, are gearing up for a busy year with unknown change ahead.
The Cambridge market in a snapshot
In particular, teams across Cambridge have been adding breadth to their skillsets to offset any uncertainty. We have seen senior appointments not only across Corporate/Commercial focussed teams, but Employment, Property and similarly related practice areas.
Cambridge business and practices are looking for experienced in-house solicitors, senior corporate lawyers, real estate lawyers at all levels, and most notably perhaps for private client and family solicitors.
An opportunity, or a risk?
During this politically turbulent time we appreciate that the jobs market for our candidate is of upmost importance and we are pleased to report that we have not noticed any decrease of opportunities in the locations that we work in.
There is an argument to be made that the still unknown change due to take effect later this year might be best dealt with by exercising caution and staying put until the landscape reveals itself, but actually we see little that demonstrates support for this.
With the Cambridge market still growing and a healthy variety of roles across both practice and in-house businesses in the region, there is a clear opportunity for those looking to either forge their own role within a growing business, or make the most of skillsets that will become crucial after March.
