Several Am Law 200 firms in recent weeks have announced new leaders or created new roles to oversee hiring and talent, as the legal industry continues to cycle through an era of what some analysts have called “the busiest volume of lawyer moves we’ll ever see.”

Law firms are adjusting these leadership roles as the lateral market remains robust across Big Law, despite nominal declines in 2023. Longer-term trends, such as the retirement of baby boomers and many new lawyers’ get-in, get-out approach to Big Law, could also be top-of-mind for talent leaders across the industry, some analysts say.
