East Midlands - NQ and Paralegal Careers Talks 2019


This month, in conjunction with the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire Junior Lawyers Divisions, Richard, David and Dominic presented the Bygott Biggs NQ and Paralegal Careers Talk 2019 to a host of the regions Trainee Solicitors and Paralegals.

Attendees joined Bygott Biggs and members of both the JLD committees for an informal and relaxed evening to cover the all-important topics leading up to qualification, including the current market and top tips on career planning.

The outlook is positive as the East Midlands legal market remains strong with indications of good retention rates but also opportunities for individuals to move and improve in their career, both at Paralegal and NQ level.

Away from private practice, In-house continues to be a growth area with organisations looking to make further additions to their existing legal teams at Paralegal and NQ level.

With the caveat of market supply and demand, salary levels for the region remain strong both in private practice and in-house.

We would like to say thank you to the Leicestershire JLD committee and the Nottinghamshire JLD committee for inviting Bygott Biggs to come and speak and for securing such a great attendance and of course a big thank you to all of those who attended. We hope you found the evening useful and insightful.
