Moving in-house: A guide for newly qualified and junior lawyers

As specialists in the in-house legal market, we want to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision on whether an in-house
position could be right for you.

Client demand for junior lawyers within in-house legal teams has increased considerably over the last few years. Similarly, we have seen a real surge in interest from junior lawyers looking to take an inhouse career path. Despite this, there is still some fear amongst newly qualified lawyers that you can be ‘too junior’ to move in-house. With this guide, we hope to quell those fears and offer insight from individuals who have made that move. We also hope to shed some light on what junior lawyers can do to better their chances of securing an in-house role and highlight the differences between in-house and private practice.

The in-house market is broad, with industries and sectors to suit everyone’s interests and passions. We recruit across most industry sectors with a wide variety of companies for lawyers to choose from. There is a role for everyone and with a little digging, (and help from specialist legal recruiters) your experience will be perfect for a great company.
