Hiring Trends

Los Angeles is a major hub of banking and finance but also manufacturing, trade, business, and technology. The diversity in the professional landscape creates a great need for attorneys working in a variety of practice areas. The city’s major law firms generally have a presence in both downtown LA and in Century City. The LA legal market has the dubious distinction of having the most consistent labor &employment positions in the country and hiring in that practice is currently very strong. Corporate (and other transactional hiring) continues to dominate the market, particularly mid-level candidates with M&A experience. Litigation needs tend to be concentrated in the areas of business, commercial, and civil litigation. Real estate candidates are also still highly sought.

Relocations

Few cities are as iconic as Los Angeles. And none is more associated with hopes and dreams of fame, fortune, and stardom. Los Angeles and Hollywood command tremendous sway on pop culture worldwide. The mere mention of either calls to mind movie and music stars, beach bodies, facelifts, shopping, and traffic! There’s way more here than movie stars, however. LA is a city of constant discovery—and not all of its gems are readily discernable. If you are contemplating relocating here, it’s best to rely on a seasoned local to clue you into its real treasures, including the best neighborhoods, restaurants, gyms, flea markets, and farmers markets.
