    For the last of our January reports we have partnered with the experts at Laurence Simons to assess the way that EU Regulations have been changing recruitment patterns across the European Union. The general picture is one of growth in vacancies for in-house lawyers, which is might look like something to be cheerful about. However, a closer look at the data shows that in some sectors the growth was entirely due to one particular specialism and that if one excludes those vacancies, the number of new positions in those sectors was down year on year. Find out which specialism and which sectors in the report.
