Hiring Trends

The San Diego legal market is both highly desirable and tough to penetrate. Like Boston, Baltimore, and Portland, when it comes to legal hiring, law firms prefer natives over non-locals. Ties to the area are essential. Part of our submission process to San Diego firms is specifically outlining a candidate’s connections to the city. Jobs are also less plentiful than in the larger markets of Los Angeles or the San Francisco Bay Area so they tend to be competitive when they do arise. Patent hiring is a constant and this is a great market for both patent prosecutors and patent agents. As with every other market, corporate hiring presently dominates. Labor & employment and technology transactions hiring are both very strong practices currently.

Relocations

With miles of stunning beaches, picture perfect weather year-round, and the friendly disposition of its residents, San Diego combines the best of modern sophistication and relaxation. Despite being the 8th largest city in the US, it’s incredibly laid back—and beautiful! San Diego has world-famous attractions that appeal to everyone, including families, and it is perennially family friendly for both visitors and residents.
