Offshore war for talent rages on

Reports that the war for talent is over are much exaggerated as the battle rages to find the best lawyers to meet client demand and deliver a platform for growth

There’s no shortage of work – far from it,” says Jason Romer, group managing partner of Collas Crill. “The real challenge, as it is for all firms right now, is capacity and attracting brilliant people. The war for talent rages on.” That war is being fought on many fronts – from graduates to partnership, firms are trying to boost their headcount to meet demand and win more work. According to a recent survey from legal reputation management consultancy Byfield, most UK managing partners say that recruitment and retention are top of their list of business concerns with 95% of them citing the war for talent as a major concern.
