Now that the world is transitioning towards an endemic Covid-19 state, the issues continue to be rectified, pulling in demand for savvy legal eagles to help navigate the path ahead in industries like raw material production, manufacturing, transportation, airlines, and logistics handling.
Technological innovation drives our modern lives and organizations on the metaverse and beyond continue to grow this economy. With fast-evolving technologies such as SAAS, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and E-Commerce at the forefront, legal needs will evolve in the technology field. Talents will continue to be in demand in the coming years.
Governance, Regulatory and Compliance Practice
In an environment of increasing regulation and heightened attention on governance, the challenges of corporate compliance will multiply. Fields of interest such as Data Protection, Blockchain, Crypto-exchanges and currencies, Digital Banking, Ethics & Compliance continue to draw in new talents. As new regulations and laws are minted every day, companies rely on the lawyers who interpret these laws to keep risk at bay.

Moving on from vaccines to other Covid-19 related medications, pharmaceuticals are at the frontlines with a critical need for talents. As the Health and Pharmaceutical industries continue to boom, the demand for legal professionals has risen in parallel.
