Upturn in the economy and commercial sectors

Posted by

The Law Society Gazette recently predicted that the legal market in the UK will next year attain growth levels which have not been seen since the start of the economic downturn in 2008. Family households are witnessing an increase in income, which in turn results in increased economic activity on all levels - both individually and at a business level.

According to the Law Society Gazette, the main factors contributing to such growth are the improvement in the performance of the UK business sector, alongside an increase in activity within the housing market. Law Society President Andrew Caplan noted; 'If household incomes rise as predicted, our members with clients buying and selling property or needing legal advice for their businesses will benefit from the housing market and business activity'.

This is definitely a trend which Sellick Partnership Legal feels has been reflected greatly in the level of activity within our specialist recruitment markets during the past 6 months. There has been a dramatic rise in the number of clients requiring professionals with a strong commercial background.

Boom areas of the law at present are commercial and residential property, alongside commercial contracts and procurement specialists and clients are crying out for experienced pairs of hands to handle all manner of property transactions, from smaller residential matters to the larger development and regeneration commercial projects. This is an area of work which had all but disappeared since the recession hit, and it is a great sign for all of us and the UK economy in general that it looks like it is finally back to business as usual!
