Big Law has rapidly added lateral partners in Chicago this year, as demand rises and lateral activity is poised to accelerate across the industry, according to some recruiters and analysts.

But the numbers are still up relative to the long-term average, and partner laterals in the Windy City, in particular, have surged 83% relative to the last six years, according to intelligence firm Decipher. Along with Charlotte and Nashville, Chicago saw some of the highest growth in lateral partner moves in the last quarter.
