The demand from Texas law firms continues to be very strong for litigation associates and paralegals in Austin.
We are currently working with several different law firms to help them find permanent associates of varying levels and varying litigation experience.
The tide has turned and, after several years of strong demand for corporate and other transactional lawyers, the demand in law firms now is for litigation associates.
We are seeing this across the board, in all of our legal placement markets, and for staffing as well as attorney positions.
All Austin employers who have 15 or more employees who work in Austin are covered by Austin’s new ban-the-box ordinance. If you are covered, then you can’t ask about an applicant’s criminal history in an application.
For more details about this law, see this summary of the ordinance by Austin employment lawyers Hutcheson Bowers.
Momentum is ending the year with a bang!

IN-HOUSE POSITION IN AUSTIN
Our client, an international company based in Austin, is seeking a securities attorney with 3+ years of experience to help with a wide range of compliance issues and contracts. Qualified candidates will have a large law firm background and experience with corporate or securities experience. Great company with predictable hours, top compensation, and ample opportunities for growth. Please reference position 733716.
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!
