How to Attract and Recruit Talent in a Competitive Legal Market in 2023

Posted on 14/11/2022 by Katherine Memery

Realm was one of only a few advisors invited to speak to law firms about the challenges they are facing in attracting and retaining talent at the recent TAG Alliances International Legal Conference in Dublin.  

In our talk, we covered: 

  • The top reasons lawyers left their firm for a competitor this year 

  • The factors that are likely to keep talent at firms in 2023 

  • How to retain and attract the most in-demand demographic for law firms: the 2-7 PQE lawyer 

If this sounds like essential insight for your firm but you didn’t attend the conference, don’t worry - here’s a video we recently recorded covering these points: 

If the information contained in this video is of interest to you, Realm can help you attract and recruit talent in today’s competitive legal market. 

Are you: 

  • Struggling to recruit talent in the face of increased competition and market pressures 

  • Experiencing a lack of candidates for roles you have not struggled to fill in the past? 

  • Worried that empty seats are impacting your ability to meet growth targets? 

  • Lacking a clear attraction strategy that looks to reduce recruitment spend over time? 

Realm can help. 

We can work with your firm to provide a bespoke package of one or more of the following services: 

  • In-depth competitor benchmarking: find out why your competitors are attracting the talent you want and what lawyers are saying about your firm 

  • Employee value proposition (EVP) development: we’ll help you assess what makes your firm truly unique and ensure it aligns with what the talent market is telling us it wants 

  • Employer brand media: we'll work with you to produce high quality content about your firm and use it to communicate your EVP to the communities of lawyers we work with 

Speak to us today to discuss how we can help your firm attract more of the talent you want, cut time-to-hire and save money on recruitment costs – often for the cost of a single hire.
