November 2020: Edwards Gibson report quoted in 'The Lawyer' Horizon daily newsletter 'Looking for a new job? Don't despair'

The Lawyer recently (10th November 2020) published an article in their Horizon daily newsletter titled 'Looking for a job? Don't despair'. The article explores the current state of the legal recruitment market - it is based on Edwards Gibson’s September-October 2020 Partner Moves edition and highlights the recent downturn in lateral recruitment:

'New data from recruitment consultant Edwards Gibson confirms that the number of partner moves recorded over the past two months (72) is 32 per cent lower than the 106 in the same period last year. When you consider that two firms accounted for 11 of those hires (Goodwin Procter made six and Stephenson Harwood made five), the drop looks even more stark, down 42 per cent on 2019.'
