Law Report – Brexit and the implications for Banking Lawyers

Laurence Simons and Vacancysoft

Summer 2016

To create this report, Vacancysoft analysed vacancies recorded since January 2015. Our data for this analysis spanned the legal and banking sectors both in the UK and across Continental Europe. The key headlines of the report are:

  • Financial Services Litigators and Regulators likely to be the big winners as demand for their services increases.
  • Regionally legal vacancies in Banks have held relatively steady, regardless of Brexit. In London though vacancy volumes are down significantly for Banking Lawyers.
  • Regardless of Brexit vacancies for lawyers in London have fallen in terms of national share, down from over 40% of all legal vacancies two years ago to 30% now.
  • Across Europe, Paris was already this year the largest centre for vacancies for Banking Lawyers outside the UK, will this now accelerate?
