Twas the week before Christmas...and legal hiring continues!

Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Thu, Dec 18, 2014

Typically we see a significant downturn in new openings between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The slowdown was not as drastic as it has been in many years past; in fact, there wasn't much of a slow down at all.   Here it is, just days before Christmas, when legal hiring typically comes to a complete stop.  But we have four new openings:  associate, paralegal, legal assistant and paralegal, in Dallas, Houston, and Austin, respectively.  One is with a law firm and three are in-house.  Hopefully this portends continued strong hiring for 2015!
