Danos Associates has expanded their legal expertise as recruitment opportunities accelerate across the legal in-house Commerce and Industry (C&I) market, by appointing Nick Wilkins as Associate Partner, Head of C&I Legal.
Nick reports that 2020 was a quiet year for C&I legal hiring, affected directly by pandemic and the crashing of oil prices, which had a significant impact on the energy sector, and the subsequent knock-on effect for other industries.
As we rapidly approach the midpoint of 2021, the market has picked up considerably across C&I, with numerous roles being released each day. The Pharmaceutical and Technology markets continue to be buoyant, as they were in 2020, and we are beginning to see a rise in hiring activity across other sectors including Energy/Oil & Gas.
With the Covid vaccine being rolled out and market confidence growing, we expect to see increased activity for the duration of 2021.
If you are looking to hire, please reach out to Nick, who can share his market knowledge and identify the best talent for your firm, or if you are looking for a career move Nick will be happy to discuss current opportunities.
