Case Study – Legal Professionals changing specialism

Case Study – Legal Professionals changing specialism

14 March 2023 by Stuart John

Below are snapshot details of five Solicitors that the Abacus Careers Legal Recruitment Team have helped find a new position in the last year. All of these professionals had these common traits:

(a) strong academics,

(b) a strong motivation to move into a larger firm/more corporate environment and,

(c) a genuine desire and interest in the area they moved into.

Examples:

A 1 yr PQE Solicitor, trained in a small, regional practice with Family Law experience post qualified.  Joined a Tier 1, Chambers listed firm within the Commercial Property team.

A 1 yr PQE Solicitor who trained and qualified within a general practice who joined a large, city centre firm as part of their corporate department.

A 2 yr PQE residential conveyancing solicitor, working within a firm based outside of Belfast joined a global law firm as part of the Real Estate team.

A newly qualified solicitor completed their training contract with a sole practitioner, joined the Real Estate team of an International Law firm based in Belfast.

A newly qualified solicitor who trained in a firm handling criminal and family work, joined a Tier 1 ranked firm as part of the Property Litigation and Building Disputes team.
