Hildebrandt forecasts radical change and loss of partner-track jobs in US
More than 17,000 partner-track associate jobs in the US could be lost or reclassed as lower-paying roles over the next five to seven years according to new research, writes The AmLaw Daily. The forecast comes from consultant Hildebrandt Baker Robbins, which is expecting radical upheaval in the world's largest legal market. Hildebrandt is arguing that more than a quarter of the non-partner jobs at top 200 US law firms could either disappear over the next seven years or be recast as lower paying positions away from the track to partnership as firms move to reshape their cost base.
